Investigation: Ozone Snaps
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.

Identifying Ozone Variations over Different Locations
Students analyze ozone data. In this atmosphere lesson, students will use a NASA resource to gather data for different regions of the Earth. Students will then create a graph for their data and answer related questions.
7th - 12th 21st Century Skills
Effects of Ozone Depletion
Explore the causes of ozone depletion and the effect on plankton, algae, plants, amphibians, and humans. Learn how the Montreal Protocol has possibly helped reverse the decline of the ozone layer. Warning: photos of skin and eye damage caused by UV radiation are included.
11th - Higher Ed Science
Students engage in lesson concerned with the concept of the ozone layer. They write a reflective journal using prior knowledge. Students read sources of information about the existence of a hole in the ozone layer. Finally they create models of molecules to compare oxygen and ozone.
8th - 9th Science
Ozone Hole Expert Groups
Research topics associated with the hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica. Researchers write five facts about their topic and one question for each of those facts. They present what they learned to the rest of the class. Six topics are available to choose from.
3rd - 8th Visual & Performing Arts
Investigation: Blowing in the Wind
Using a simulated air sample, environmental or earth science pupils examine the components. You will need to prepare the faux air by using a hole punch and various colors of construction paper. Each color will represent a different component of the atmosphere as you designate.

Facts II: The Aspen FACE Experiment
The Aspen FACE (free-air carbon dioxide enrichment) Experiment was set up in Wisconsin to assess the effects of increased carbon dioxide and ozone on forest ecosystems. Environmental science learners examine and graph the growth index data for the aspen trees involved.
9th - 10th Science
Air Pollution: What's the Solution?
This air pollution worksheet provides a step-by-step process for gathering data about the ozone and weather. Amateur meteorologists enter data for 3 days including the air quality, the temperature, the wind speed, any particular events that occurred and the air quality color.
8th - 10th Science
Introduction to Ozone Reading Activity
Simple, but suitable, this lesson gives mini-meteorologists a glimpse at ozone in the atmosphere. By reading an article, they find that ozone in the stratosphere is vital to life, but ozone in the troposphere is problematic. A reading comprehension worksheet follows the reading.
5th - 10th Science
Linkages Between Surface Temperature and Tropospheric Ozone
Students use data microsets of mean near-surface air temperature and tropospheric ozone residual averages to infer patterns. Students analyze changes in tropospheric ozone and then hypothesize about the consequences of these changes.
9th - 12th Science
Validation of Stratospheric Ozone
Students examine the stratospheric ozone. In this data collecting lesson, students compare methods of measuring stratospheric ozone, collect and record data using graphic representations with a graphing calculator or Microsoft Excel. They interpret the data by answering a series of questions.
9th - 12th Math
Creating and Analyzing Graphs of Tropospheric Ozone
Students create and analyze graphs using archived atmospheric data to compare the ozone levels of selected regions around the world. They locate and identify geographical regions using latitude and longitude. Students graph archived ozone data from the Live Access Server
7th - 12th Science
Ozone Layer and Eukaryotes Show Up in the Proterozoic Eon
During the Achaea Eon, Cyano bacteria start to produce and release oxygen into the atmosphere making the environment suitable for Eukaryotic life forms. Sal explains the timeline of these events as well as the consequences that occurred due to the higher levels of oxygen.
