Using UV sensitive beads students will test the effectiveness of different products in protecting against UV radiation.
In this lesson, students will learn the anatomy and physiology of the respiratory system, and research air pollutants that affect respiration.
Middle school students will describe why global warming is an environmental health issue and how it can potentially affect human health.
Students analyze effects and solutions of this mostly invisible and often unheard of health hazard, indoor air pollution.
Students examine environmental health issues that have caused schools to literally “make kids sick”.
What is in the air we breathe? In this lesson, students examine particulate matter collected from the air using petri dishes and learn about the respiratory system.
Students use information gathered from a Web Quest to write an essay that correlates the effects of urban explosion on the health of area inhabitants.
Students will explore the relationship between surface ozone and asthma by measuring the air pollutant, ozone, and correlating it with other atmospheric conditions.

In this activity, middle school students use internet video to learn about the respiratory system and the path of oxygen through the circulatory system.
Air pollution has been a problem since the beginning of the Industrial Age. Students will educate their peers about particulate matter, including air pollutants.
In this lesson, students will use the air quality index rating scale, data about specific air pollutants, and asthma rates by county.
In this lesson, students will convert given information into bar graphs in order to make sense of numbers.
How does the air quality index in one area of the state or country compare with that in another location?
