Preparations are under way at the New Jersey State Museum for an exhibit commemorating the Sept. 11 attacks.

It will run from Sept. 7 through Sept. 30.

Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno will announce the details at the Statehouse on Thursday.

She says the goal is to honor and unite New Jersey residents.

About 700 New Jerseyans died in the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and aboard a hijacked airliner that crashed in western Pennsylvania.

Also on Thursday, New Jersey is unveiling a Sept. 11 curriculum for students from kindergarten through high school. The classroom lessons focus on the attacks, the history of terrorism and the heroics of regular people.
