Air Quality Index

Young environmentalists are introduced to the Air Quality Index by viewing a PowerPoint presentation. There is no link to the presentation, but it can be found by searching the title on the Internet. An accompanying worksheet is to be filled out along the way. Learners then use petroleum jelly or double-sided sticky tape to collect airborne particulates, which they then view under a microscope. Some extension ideas are provided, including a fun interactive smog simulation.
