This is a good resource to use to teach students the importance of a pollutant free environment. The site shows an animation of a city and where the various sources of pollution are coming from. It is easy to handle and provides additional information when clicking on a certain object. For example, if you click on a car, the site will tell you how cars pollute the atmosphere around us. I also think that this lesson will be fun and keep all the students engaged.
