In this lesson, students conduct a personal air eco-audit to identify sources of pollutants in their homes. After a thorough at-home investigation, students then brainstorm ways they can improve the air quality in their home. They are encouraged to work with members of their household to complete this eco-audit, if possible, and to engage their support in improving indoor air quality. They are also given time with classmates to share ideas and brainstorm, making this a fun and fruitful communal activity.

Key objectives for students
Conduct an indoor air eco-audit at home to identify sources of pollutants at home.
Identify actions taken at home that already help improve air quality.
Brainstorm solutions for further improving indoor air quality at home.
Reflect on the importance of being aware of indoor air pollutants.
