The New York State Museum is proud to present this guide for teachers in conjunction with their exhibition, The World Trade Center: Rescue Recovery Response. Images and artifacts are used to tell the compelling stories of what happened on September 11, 2001 and the days that followed.

The following information is excerpted from the Teacher's Guide:

    "The World Trade Center: Rescue Response Recovery is an exhibition by the New York State Museum. It documents the attacks on the World Trade Center and the days and weeks that followed. The exhibit is divided into three parts.
    • Rescue tells the story of the emergency workers at the Twin Towers in the first 24 hours after the attack through the eyes of the New York Fire Department’s Engine Company 6, which lost four firefighters in the towers’ collapse.
    • Recovery documents the painstaking process of sifting through the 1.8 million tons of World Trade Center debris at Staten Island’s Fresh Kills Landfill.
    • Response presents some of the many ways people from throughout New York, across the country, and around the world reacted to the attacks."
