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.
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.
Auntie Litter is at it again, this time helping scholars understand the value of clean air. After discussing the historical and current dangers of air pollution, they explore particles in the air through two simple experiments. After discussing some key vocabulary, the class watches a 15-minute podcast documenting Auntie Litter and the Pollution Patrol's quest against Mr. Grody's destructive trash-burning. They learn about harmful gasses and ways to prevent them. Extend this across multiple subjects with any of the reading, math, social studies, art, science, and cooking activities listed here. You could easily make this a two-week unit.
Students 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. Students complete a worksheet about one article and have a discussion on the issue of air pollution's role in asthma.
