Global Support and Tributes

The September 11th terrorist attacks did not just affect Americans; it struck a sympathetic and concerned chord throughout the entire world. The day of, and for many following, global support was offered in a variety of ways. Here, scholars explore how different countries provided care, kindness, and gifts to show their solidarity. Learners then create a picture representation of one country's act of global support.
