We talked about the experiment that we did, and we also talked about other safety things that we could do to avoid being hurt when things such as the glass exploding happens.
Next we where discussing about what we are going to do in class and that we are going to start discussing how do we affect the Atmosphere. Also, Mr. Pro explained to us that we where going to have to do an essay and he explained to us how we should do it, and how we are going to be graded on that.
We later answered questions based on the brainpop video on air pollution
- How does burning fossil fuels in factories, power plants, cars, and in our homes affect the atmosphere?
It releases harmful chemicals, soot and dust into the atmosphere that can make us sick.
- What damage can air pollution do you to your lungs?
It will stick to your lungs. It can also contribute to formation of cancer and asthma.
- Define smog.
It’s a mixture of smoke and fog that forms over cities.
- Describe why ozone is not good on the surface, but good in the stratosphere.
It reacts with other molecules forming very harmful chemicals. But in the stratosphere, it protects us from UV radiation.
- Describe a problem caused by acid rain.
It can kill animals, especially ones with permeable skin (like frogs).
- What causes pollution?
We also answered some more questions on what atmospheric problems have we created
What’s the problem?
What is causing the problem?
What are people doing to solve the problem?
How is nature acting to solve the problem?
We watched two videos on global warming
We discussed that if this global warming continues more than half of the big cities will eventually be underwater.
We had to answer the Task Form on city smog and answer the following questions
Explain the problem.
Explain the causes of the problem.
Explain what people are doing to solve the problem.
Explain what nature is doing to solve the problem.
Discuss a future solution that may be used in the future to solve the problem.
