Fueling Around - Hazardous to Your Health. A Basic Teaching Unit on Energy. Revised.
McDermott, Hugh, Ed.; Scharmann, Larry, Ed.
Seven activities are included in this 10 day secondary school science unit in which students determine the effect that auto exhaust fumes have on the air they breathe by utilizing laboratory experiences, independent research, and in-class discussions. Rationale, objectives, and instructional strategies are provided for each activity. Following two reading activities on air pollution, air pollutants, and standards, air pollutants are identified and exhaust fumes used to determine the amount of lead, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and particulate matter in air. A list of process skills fostered in the unit, advanced teacher preparation, goals, planning guide, and evaluation suggestions are included in the introduction. (Author/JN)
