Lesson Plan


Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Educate scholars on pollution—air, water, and land—with a series of lessons that begin with a thorough explanation of each type. Learners then take part in three activities to reinforce the importance of reducing pollution. They then test air quality around their campus and educate their fellow schoolmates about how to properly dispose or reuse trash. Last, learners design and conduct a survey about individuals' attitude toward recycling, and display their findings in a graphic organizer highlighting the median.
