Healthy Homes (post-assessment)

In this activity, students will identify potential airborne pollutants in their homes and learn ways to reduce or eliminate these hazards. They will make and record observations, draw conclusions based on their investigation, and apply prior knowledge to a new situation. 

The primary science concept addressed in this activity is that we are able to influence many aspects of indoor air quality. Students will discover that it is fairly easy to improve the quality of air in their homes.
