This week in a special episode, the FYI team reports from the US as the world remembers the 9/11 terror attacks 20 years on. Why did the attacks happen? What impact has it had on our lives? And how do we keep ourselves safe from terror attacks?
And 12 year old Salik tells FYI how 9/11 still has an impact on Muslim lives today: “Just because I am a Muslim it doesn’t mean I am a terrorist.”
To accompany the FYI special episode, First News has produced a News Analysis activity with questions enabling young people to understand the facts and talk through the events in the US twenty years ago on 9/11. It comprises of the two page Special Report from this week’s First News and a set of questions. Download the resource here.
