The Clean Air Detectives is a set of educational activities designed to engage students with the issue of air pollution in their classroom and local community and to take meaningful action for cleaner air.
The activities are centred around four themes:
Analyse: Students will represent the data that has been collected by an air monitor in a school on graphs and charts and will compare this to data.
Identify: Students will learn about how our lungs work and the impact air pollution has on their respiratory system.
Act: Students identify the cause of air pollution that they most want to address and create a campaign for change in their local community.
Report: Students will report on the issue of air pollution by writing scripts for their own news broadcasts and recording these (if possible).
