Pollinator Activities

Friends of Flight 93

 

The Friends of Flight 93 National Memorial is the official 501(c)3 philanthropic partner to Flight 93 National Memorial. The lessons and activities below were created for teachers and parents to teach children (or themselves!) about the role pollinators play in the world and about the pollinators themselves.

A special science-based Pollinator Curriculum for Kindergarten to grade 2 is now available online! While other grade levels are still in development, it is critical for this piece to be completed first. The goal of this piece is to introduce younger children to the memorial in an age-appropriate manner. Children are naturally curious and will ask questions about what they see around them, giving adults and staff the ability to tell the story of Flight 93 through the pollinators’ natural restoration of the memorial grounds and crash site that honors the passenger and crew members of Flight 93 every day.
