Science teacher Michael Naka decided to lead his students in an environmental science field study to measure air pollution. Using the Kids Making Sense curriculum and instrument kit, the students revealed air pollution in their community and brought it to the attention of local officials.
The students learned more than science. They learned how to apply it to change their world – a lesson that made a lasting impact on the community, the students, and their teacher.
Their adventure in science has been chronicled in an uplifting article that will be featured soon on the We Are Teachers website.
