In this experiment, your students will be able to visually see the air pollution that they breathe in on a daily basis. Prior to this lab your students should have an understanding of how to use microscopes, as they will use them to observe and collect data. Click on the preview file to see the materials needed for this lab.

Materials Needed: Compound microscopes, slides (gridded or plain), cover slips, cotton swabs, petroleum jelly, and petri dishes.

Included are 2 versions of this lab:

1. In version 1, students use gridded microscope slides (see picture in preview) to collect quantitative data and calculate the air pollution deposition rate.

2. In version 2, students use plain glass microscope slides and can collect qualitative data.

NGSSHS-ESS3-6
Use a computational representation to illustrate the relationships among Earth systems and how those relationships are being modified due to human activity. Examples of Earth systems to be considered are the hydrosphere, atmosphere, cryosphere, geosphere, and/or biosphere. An example of the far-reaching impacts from a human activity is how an increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide results in an increase in photosynthetic biomass on land and an increase in ocean acidification, with resulting impacts on sea organism health and marine populations. Assessment does not include running computational representations but is limited to using the published results of scientific computational models.
NGSSMS-ESS3-4
Construct an argument supported by evidence for how increases in human population and per-capita consumption of natural resources impact Earth’s systems. Examples of evidence include grade-appropriate databases on human populations and the rates of consumption of food and natural resources (such as freshwater, mineral, and energy). Examples of impacts can include changes to the appearance, composition, and structure of Earth’s systems as well as the rates at which they change. The consequences of increases in human populations and consumption of natural resources are described by science, but science does not make the decisions for the actions society takes.
