Healthy Homes

Meant to follow a lesson about how concentrated air particles can be inside of a building, this resource gets individuals to assess the possible air pollutants in their own homes. They take home a worksheet and circle spots on it that represent sources. Then, they bring the results to class for a discussion. In an accompanying storybook, Mr. Slaptail's Secret, characters find ways to eliminate indoor pollution. A post-assessment is also included if you have used the entire unit.
