1.5 An Introduction to Pollution
An Introduction to Pollution Activity
For this activity students access a Pinterest board which I have compiled on news stories about Pollution in general. In order to access a Pinterest board students need to sign-in. At my school all students have a Google address and so they can easily login with their school email.
Once logged in students choose one of the articles. Try to ensure that each student has a different article and that a wide variety of types of pollution are included throughout the class.
I then had students record a summary of the article on a Padlet wall (here is an example but please use your own). They should include:

An Introduction to Pollution Teaching Activity
Login to this Pollution Pinterest Board using your google school email account.
Choose one of the articles - all students or student groups should have their own article covering a wide variety of types of pollution.
Record a summary of the article on our Padlet wall. Include the following information:
- The pollutants
- The Sources
- The Impacts
- Identify if Point or Non-Point Source Pollution

You will be asked to give an oral summary to your findings to check for understanding.
Take notes of your student colleagues oral summaries.
