Teaching Children About Air Pollution

Young people need to understand that they can make a difference in our planet's health, too. Our goal is to help you teach children about timely topics like air quality, air pollution, and climate change, and to help you talk about actions that can make Earth's air cleaner.

The outreach materials on this page can be downloaded and printed, and other lesson plans are available elsewhere on this website. We have also collected links to resources available in other places, including posters, scientific papers and data, and tips for action.

Everything below can help you teach about air pollution, and how it can affect everyone's health and the health of our planet.
