|Particulate Matter: The Lorax|
In this activity, younger students count and examine paticulate pollutants that they collect themselves. The Dr. Suess story "The Lorax" is used as a point of focus for the idea of air pollution. Students will discover what makes up particulate matter in the air. They will also learn about the major sources of particulate pollution and how very small particles may become trapped in the lungs.
