This amazing instructional activity has maps, photographs, worksheets, and all sorts of terrific educational tasks for groups to perform. Top-notch!
Learners investigate the effects of types of pollution in a closed system of a glass of water.  In this Earth science lesson,  students use a glass of water as  model for air.  Learners introduce different materials to represent types of air pollutants.  Students then consider ways to reduce their impact on air pollution.
Plenty of background information about how air pollution affects much more than just our lungs is included on this attractive handout. After reading, pupils make a working model of a lung and diaphragm. Junior physicians place a small piece of cotton in the lung to find out what happens. Since there is so much reading, consider creating a comprehension activity to make sure you class is absorbing the relevant information.
Eleventh graders consider air quality. In this environmental stewardship lesson, 11th graders consider the impact of air pollution on asthma and identify ways that they can work to reduce air pollution.
Learners locate on a map the potential areas of air pollution in their community. They identify the possible sources and types of air pollution in the community based on observations and predict and locate on a map potential areas of pollution in the community.
Students explore the topic of air pollution. They complete a KWL chart, answer discussion questions, and define key vocabulary terms.
Seventh graders examine how the use of electricity affects air quality.  In this pollution lesson students complete a handout and a column chart showing the air pollutants they had generated.
In this air pollution worksheet, young scholars watch a video about asthma and indicate the triggers of asthma. They also use a web site to get real time data about the ozone, particle pollution and air quality to answer four questions. Students use the American Lung Association data to answer five questions about diseases related to air pollution and answer two questions to complete the worksheet.
When your environmental or earth science class is studying air pollution, you will want to take the time to go over this resource. Pupils peruse the history of air pollution regulations and examine outstanding diagrams of what contributes to smog in American cities. You could project the diagrams during a discussion and reading rather than include them in the handout.
The hole in the ozone layer may "scaereosol" to death! Meteorology, environmental, or atmosphere students read about the atmosphere's ozone content and the sources of air pollution. This is a valuable reading resource for your atmosphere unit.
This investigation of the effect of air pollution on rubber bands is a snap! After closely observing the properties of a fresh rubber band, learners let them sit outdoors, both sealed off from and exposed to, open air. After a week, observations are made again to determine if being exposed to possible polluted air has made a difference. The intent is to demonstate that ozone has an effect on rubber.
Eighth graders study air pollution and identify some causes, effects and solutions.  In this air pollution lesson students complete several activities. 
Students participate in a baseball game in which they answer questions related to air pollution. They answer true and false questions as well. They discuss the impact of air pollution on the environment.
What is the air quality index? Start by discussing pollution and air quality with your budding environmentalists. A list of instructional activities are provided here from inviting a guest speaker into your classroom to discussing asthma. Challenge your class to think of new ways to control air pollution. 
Students investigate problems with air pollution and how it affects the environment and health. They discover methods designed to combat air pollution.
Young scholars identify the causes and effects of air pollution and how to reduce air pollution.
Young scholars read two different articles which present the scientific issue of asthma, the causes, and the rising rates in our society. Students read for facts and examine whether or not the scientists have a political point of view. Young scholars complete a worksheet about one article and have a discussion on the issue of air pollution's role in asthma.
Students explore air pollution.  In this environmental studies lesson, students work with a partner to create a Venn diagram comparing and contrasting possible solutions to prevalent indoor air pollution problems.  Students discuss and compare Venn Diagrams.
Students review terms associated with air pollution and complete a word search.
Students investigation how air pollution affects their surroundings. In this air quality lesson, students experiment through a variety of stations that focus on vegetation, soil, water, visibility, property, and human health.
