Acid rain is a result of air pollution which is caused by the burning of coal. Acid rain over a long period of time is strong enough to damage to the surfaces of buildings and statues (both made of stone and metal-like copper). It can also cause harm to living things; plants, animals, insects and people. In this activity Students will observe and determine the effects of acid rain on pennines and chalk. Students will then read a blurb about acid rain and make some inferences based on the reading and the experiment.
