The video concludes by promoting limiting the use of fossil fuels as a means of resolving the impact of air pollution.
This video is best suited for the upper elementary and middle school classroom due to the Science concepts and terminology discussed. This video could be used as an introduction to air pollutants. Students could use the video as a jumping off point to investigate the different types of air pollution in their own communities and then make posters to encourage others to limit their contributions to air pollution.
