3rd class: GLOBE air quality campaign
3rd class enjoyed taking part in the GLOBE air quality campaign.
We learned that the air around us can be polluted by traffic, smoke from factories and houses, boats, planes and many other pollutants.
We put up air quality test tubes around our school grounds to measure the levels of nitrogen dioxide in the air around us. Nitrogen dioxide can be bad for our lungs and for the plants and animals too.
These tubes stayed in place for 4 weeks. We sent them off to the lab to be tested and we can't wait to hear the results.
