Lesson Plans

Coming Soon!

Up in the Air: an Air Pollution Education Program for Kindergarten through 5th Grade will be available in 2016.

Our program provides elementary educators with two units of inquiry-based, hands-on air pollution lessons for grades K-2 and 3-5.

Each lesson Includes:

  • Goals and objectives aligned to current Arizona academic standards for science, English/language arts, math and social studies
  • Essential questions to focus student learning
  • Key vocabulary
  • Detailed instructions for each investigation
  • Blackline masters for all lab sheets and assessments
  • Links to websites, videos and other online tools
  • Digital lessons for interactive SMART boards

Become a part of our pilot program!

We are looking for educators to teach one unit of six lessons and give us feedback. We will provide all the hands-on materials needed at no cost.
Pilot program begins spring 2016. Contact Education Outreach Coordinator: JennyFrank@mail.maricopa.gov ; 602-506-6355.
