Like many of us, Airthings are in awe of the work educators, parents and caregivers have done throughout the past couple of years in light of recent events. Challenges no one would have seen coming have been thrown at everyone across the globe, meaning that caregivers have become educators and vice versa. Online education suddenly became a huge priority.
Air for kids was designed with one goal; air quality education. The air we breathe in is paramount to our health and wellbeing. Not to mention the impact the air has on our planet’s ecosystem. We believe learning about air quality is a vital subject that everyone should know more about. As part of Airthings’ commitment to the UN Global Compact initiative, we have therefore set the ambitious goal of educating one million children about air quality by 2026!
We hope to do our part with free resources designed to help teach students about air quality and environmental issues that face us all. In doing so, we hope to ease the burden you have been under in the past years, with fun, interactive additions to your lesson plans. Read on to find out 3 ways you can use Air for Kids alongside your teaching.
