Educational Materials

ACA is pleased to share our FREE air quality learning materials developed for educators by educators, including:

  • ready-to-go classroom PowerPoint (PPT) presentations;
  • accompanying Teacher’s Guides, including classroom activities; 
  • slide-by-slide Teaching Scripts to support the delivery of the PPT presentations; and
  • a fun and engaging air quality “Jeopardy” summative assessment PPT game (Grade 5’s only).

As an additional bonus, ACA  has recorded the delivery of our PPT presentations by an Air Quality expert as an easy-to-use alternative to live-teacher delivery. These Youtube video recordings are available free of charge by request – contact us by email and we’ll send you the links.
