As the 5th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States approaches, students are still faced with many harsh realities about this terrible tragedy. In light of renewed media attention on 9/11, as well as numerous major motion picture releases dealing with these events, BrainPOP is offering its video clip on terrorism free of charge to all visitors of its web site during the month of September. The video aims to empower children with the knowledge they need to answer their own questions about terrorism to allay some of their fear. The clip explains what terrorism is and what qualifies as an act of terrorism, discusses why people commit acts of terrorism, and addresses the events of September 11. It reassures children that the feelings caused by those events are natural and encourages them to stay up to date with current events so they know what is going on in the world around them. The video also provides a link to the Department of Homeland Security web site and other resources.
