Why Air Quality Matters?

Grades: 8th Grade, 6th Grade, 7th Grade
Subjects: STEAM, Health, Science

Student Instructions

1. Draw a picture of a particulate matter (from air pollution) traveling from the outside environment into your lungs. 2. Since oxygen allowed life to happen on Earth and air pollution causes less oxygen to be in our blood, why should you wear an air filter mask when the air is polluted? 3. Record your voice explaining your drawing and answers https://www.yammer.com/daischina.net/threads/1193675819 "Air pollution doesn’t just make breathing harder for humans. In the Pacific, fish are choking, too." "Plants produce oxygen as a product of photosynthesis. Oxygen spread around the planet about 2.5 billion years ago and this development was extremely important for other life. Animals need oxygen to breathe. If photosynthesis had not evolved there would be no animals." https://www.ck12.org/c/earth-science/early-atmosphere-and-oceans/lesson/Early-Atmosphere-and-Oceans-MS-ES/?referrer=concept_details
