Welcome to Air Pollution: What's the Solution? an educational project for students, grades 6 - 12, that uses online real time data to guide student discovery of the science behind the causes and effects of outdoor air pollution. Through this project, students will focus on outdoor air pollution; what it is, what factors contribute to its formation and the health effects from breathing polluted air. Students will use data and animated maps from the Internet and monitor for the presence of air pollution. Students are challenged to think critically and creatively about the problems surrounding air pollution. By the end of this project, students will be able to: Describe what air pollutants are, when and how outdoor air pollution is formed, and what the health effects are from breathing polluted air. Please refer to the Activity Map as a guide to all of the lessons within the curriculum.

N-P-K Bracelet | Nutrients for Life Foundation This fun bracelet activity is a great way to introduce the three essential plant nutrients: Nitrogen (N), Phosphate (P) and Potassium (K). As students put the various beads together on the bracelet, they will have a better understanding of what plants need to grow. Also, use Nutrients for Life’s free elementary activity book, Fun with the Plant Nutrient Team, to enrich the lesson. If using the booklet, build the bracelet as students work their way through the book. Interestingly, plants do not technically need soil to grow (as seen with air plants and hydroponic setups), but do simply need the essential plant nutrients (N-P-K). Grade Levels: 2 to 6 Length: 10 minutes; 25 minutes when used with Fun with the Plant Nutrient Team activity book. Group size: This activity works well in both small group and in large settings. Objective: Students will be able to recall what conditions plants needs to grow, such as plant macronutrients (in the soil), sunlight, water, and air.

Looting the Earth : School Resources : Reframing Rio : tve The lessons below are designed to introduce young people to the concepts of resource depletion and sustainable development. The world is currently using its natural resources at such a rate that they cannot replenish themselves and they will become exhausted. Forests will not grow back, fish will no longer exist and mines will be dug bare. Why do we do this and, more importantly, what can we do about it? Find out by completing the five lessons in 'Looting the Earth'. Click to download the entire 'Looting the Earth' pack (all resources in .pdf format)
