NEW! Air quality activities for the classroom and the kitchen

Air Quality Education is no longer just for school, since being sent home we’ve been busy working away to find you some practical and theoretical activities that can be undertaken anywhere, with minimal resources – and using what you find around the home or classroom. All activities and resources have been found online, or are our own creations, so if you have an internet connection, you can download and use them. The best bit – they are all FREE!

Activities have been grouped under their appropriate key stage (KS). Some activities are cross-key stage, so feel free to use them as you see fit. Each activity or lesson has been chosen to cover a different aspect of the Leicester City Council’s Air Quality Education programme.

These include:

  • Identifying air pollution sources
  • Discovering the impact of poor air quality to health and the environment; and
  • Taking action to improve air quality.
