Air Pollution Solutions Lesson
This lesson plan from Breathe Utah and the STEM Action Center - Utah covers air pollution. The lesson is intended for 6th to 8th graders and includes the aligning Core Standards. During the lesson, "students will investigate possible solutions to air pollution in relation to per capita consumption of fossil fuels." The document includes the following sections: Standard/Objective, Lesson Performance Expectations, Materials, Teacher Background Information, Student Performance, and more. Three discussion questions are also included.Fossil Fuels: Oil

AMSER is a portal of educational resources and services built specifically for use by those in Community and Technical Colleges but free for anyone to use.
AMSER is funded by the National Science Foundation as part of the National Science Digital Library, and is being created by a team of project partners led by Internet Scout.
As a moving ball shoves air aside, it transfers kinetic energy to the air. Since acceleration = force/mass, the ball must decelerate. That means the ball can't travel as far in the limited time available before gravity pulls it back to Earth.
