“Clean Air” – Design your own “Clean Air Strategy”.

CRAZ is developing a “Design your own Clean Air Strategy” for students.  This program will be launching in September 2015.  We are issuing a challenge to students to develop a “Clean Air Strategy” for their schools.  It could be to create an Idle Free Zone around their schools, to plant trees for their schools, etc. CRAZ will be developing guidelines and a teacher’s toolkit to incorporate into their classrooms.

Idle Free Toolkit

CRAZ has developed a Teachers Lesson Plan on Air Quality.  This plan is simple to use and CRAZ will be happy to supply all the necessary tools to teachers wishing to implement this plan.  The plan is written for the Grade 5’s based on the Weather Curriculum but can be modified to suit any grade.  CRAZ Air Quality Manager would be happy to come and give students a free presentation on air quality.
