Our Air Pollution lesson plan introduces students to air pollution, including its causes and effects. The information in this lesson is reinforced with visuals, including photographs of places with bad air pollution, and students are asked to redraw scenes without the air pollution in order to get them to think more about its effects on the environment. During this lesson, students are asked to identify whether things are causes or effects of air pollution. Students are also asked to match terms with their definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define air pollution and list some causes and effects of air pollution.
