Teachers Lesson Plan

CRAZ has developed a teacher’s lesson plan that involves students conducting an air quality experiment, graphing their results and creating their own invention to clean the air.  Students will understand how air  quality can be impacted and how air quality impacts their health.  They will also learn how air pollution relates to climate change and identify actions they can take to reduce air pollution.

Grade level and Curriculum link: Grade 5 Science, Investigate relationships between weather phenomena and human activity.  Recognize human actions can affect climate and identify human actions linked to the greenhouse effect.

CRAZ will also provide your school with all the materials needed to run this lesson plan!

CRAZ also gives Grade 5 students a free presentation on air quality, and as a little surprise we will bring your school an Idle Free Zone, Turn Engine Off sign to display at your school.
