Chapter 1:  The Atmosphere
Lesson 4:  Air Pollution
In this lesson, students will investigate the causes and effects of air pollution.  Students will be able to determine the differences between primary and secondary pollutants as well as distinguish between natural pollutants and pollutants caused by human activities.
Using computer simulations, videos and articles, students will learn how air quality is monitored and identify the major sources of air pollution.  Students will create a powerpoint presentation to inform their classmates about a concept connected to air pollution; this powerpoint will be scored as a formative assessment and students will have class time to complete this project.  Due date for the project will be set and communicated to students.
Students will complete a computer simulation investigating the causes and effects of pollutants in a city.  This module will be completed in class and will be scored as a summative assessment.  Date for this summative will be communicated to students once it has been set.  This summative will be completed over several days.
1.  What are the causes and effects of air pollution?
2.  What is the difference between primary and secondary pollutants?
3.  What are the major sources of air pollution?
4.  How is air quality measured?
