Students explore basic concepts related to air and the atmosphere, air quality and associated issues, such as allergens in the places we live, study and work.

Designed for use with The Science of Air Teacher’s Guide, this slide set entices students to investigate air, types of gases, which gases are in air, why air moves, how air moves in and out of the lungs, types of activities that affect breathing and heart rate, mold and fungi, and whether pollutants become concentrated indoors.
