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.

This interactive website is easy to use and provides plenty of information of the impact each component of a community has on the environment.
