8th graders work to create an authentic thank you for those that helped us during our 9-11 unit. Here is what they came up with.
A thank you for Jean Cleere. Jean lost her husband during 9-11. The students created this thank you to honor her, her husband, the two firefighters that help Jim in his final moments, and all firefighters. On the side students wrote short thank you's that they wanted to include.
Students show and explain to Jean another thank you created by a different group.
Thank You Tribute Center! One group created an American flag with Police Badges and the NYC skyline, while another group created a blue and yellow tiled mural to represent the clear skies on 9-11.
Thanks Drew Gallagher! Drew is an ESPN producer and kids created a video to thank him for his time and information about Welles, 9-11, and more!
