Healthy Homes (post-assessment)

Author(s): Nancy Moreno, PhD, Barbara Tharp, MS, and Judith Dresden, MS.

Let’s Get Started

In this activity, students will identify sources of potential indoor air pollution in their homes. They will discover that many forms of air pollution can be reduced or eliminated. Students will make and record observations, draw conclusions based on their investigation, and apply prior knowledge to a new situation.
 
Give each student a copy of the “Healthy Home Survey.” Have students take their pages home and use them to identify possible air pollutants in their homes. Stress that an older family member or friend should help them to complete the survey. Students should circle or color the areas on their sheets that represent potential contributors to indoor air pollution in their homes. Encourage students to draw any additional polluters that they encounter while completing their surveys.
