Teacher Notes

Key stage 2Children could use computers or tablets to research the air quality in different parts of the world and then compare this with the problem of air quality in this country during the Industrial Revolution. What differences do they see? Have things changed or are there places around the world that still have poor air quality. The class could have a discussion afterwards looking at how they think this compares to 50 years ago and why? And what do they think is going to happen in the future?Children could complete an road survey near to the school at different times of the day. Why does traffic flow change through the day? They could create graphs to show your results.
