The Impact of Pollution on Our Planet and Our Lives P1“If we are to have a better future for our children, we shouldleave them a better planet in legacy. May this noble goal uniteus in the name of future generations!”Nevena StoilkovTeacher, Milisav Nikolic ElementarySchool, SerbiaThe Impact of Pollution on Our Planet and Our LivesSubjectGeography, Science,Language ComprehensionLearning Outcome To know some of the different forms ofenvironmental pollution To explore ways to reduce environmentalpollution To develop use of descriptive andcomparison words and build research skillsPreparation Prepare pictures for students to compare. Either print out the pictures or display themon a screen. Set up a television/projector to show thevideo. If you cannot access a television orprojector, print out images of pollution inappendix 1. Pick out case studies for the students to usein their groups. If you are able to use theinternet, choose case studies from the listin appendix 2. If you cannot connect to the internet, printout and use the simpli ied case studies inappendix 3. Provide access to a world map (appendix 4) Read through the Global Goals to explainhow pollution relates to speci ic goals inappendix 5.Note: This lesson can be taught withoutaccess to the internet.Total Time:60minsAge Range:11-14year olds

World’s Largest Lesson is a collaborative education project to support the announcementof the United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development. The project is living proof ofthe importance of Global Goal 17 “Partnerships for the Goals” and would not have been possiblewithout the help of all of our partners working with us and with each other.Thanks to our Founding Team:Powered By:Distributed By:Translated By:And special thanks to those who have worked with us across the world:Lesson plans created in collaboration with Think Global Promoting learning for a justand sustainable world.

The Impact of Pollution on Our Planet and Our Lives P2Learning Activity5minsHave students watch a short video about pollution. 6zIGYK7GMEAsk students to record all the different forms of pollution and environmental impact that they see in thevideo.Ask students to consider whether any of these forms of pollution exist where they live. Are there are otherforms of pollution not in the video that they see locally?Differentiation and AlternativesLook through the selection of images relating to pollution appendix 1. Ask students to describe the type ofpollution and environmental impact they can see.Learning Activity20minsPlace students in groups of four. Each student in the group will have a different case study that describesthe causes and effects of a form of pollution (e.g. an oil spill, vehicle exhausts, plastic bags, landfill, fossilfuel power stations, air travel, agricultural chemicals, and industrial water pollution). They should readthese individually from the links provided in appendix 2 and highlight any descriptive words.Students then have a few minutes to help each other with any unfamiliar vocabulary and to locate the casestudy on a world map (appendix 4). Afterwards, students can take turns explaining the case study theyread to their group. Encourage the students to take notes when listening.Differentiation and AlternativesStudents without internet access can use the 4 case studies in appendix 3.To plan this activity for younger or less able students, prepare a list of questions about the case studies.Choose a different question to ask each student after they have explained their case study.Support students further by preparing some true/false statements for each case study. Ask students todecide whether each one is true or false and record their answers as they listen to the other students.Learning ActivityAsk each group to come up with ideas for preventing the form of pollution they have read about. Ifpossible, solutions should focus on stopping the cause of the pollution, rather than just dealing with theeffects of pollution. Allow students to be creative with this and be prepared to support them with ideas forpreventing pollution.Ask students to draw a diagram that shows the effects of taking action to prevent pollution. Students canuse words, symbols, or pictures.Example: Using fewer plastic bags less plastic waste in the sea marine life thrives20mins

The Impact of Pollution on Our Planet and Our Lives P3Differentiation and AlternativesYou could structure this activity more effectively by preparing short written descriptions of various solutionsto problems. Students must then match up the solutions with the correct case study and problem.5Learning ActivityminsIntroduce the Global Goals (appendix 5) and explain that the environment is one of the areas these goalswill work to improve in.If students have not watched the Global Goals animation film, please amend the lesson to include it entiation and AlternativesStudents could discuss the benefits of a global initiative like the Global Goals, when it comes to stoppingenvironmental pollution.10minsLearning ActivityEach group should end the lesson by writing down two things they can do on a daily basis to preventpollution of their local environment. Refer back to the discussion at the start relating to pollution that existswhere they live. Ideas could be recorded in the classroom so that students can be reminded of them overthe coming days and weeks.Take Action fo the Global GoalsAs an educator you have the power to channel students’positive energies and help them believe that they are nothelpless, that change is possible, and that they can drive it.The Design for Change “I Can” School Challenge inviteschildren to take action, make change for themselves and shareit with children across the world.Visit to get started.To download a Design for Change lesson pack or a simpleadvice pack for young people to take actionthemselves visit

The Impact of Pollution on Our Planet and Our Lives P11ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT CASE STUDYWater Pollution: BP Oil Spill in the Gulf of MexicoAdapted from the BBC Bitesize geography/wasting resources/waste pollution rev5.shtmlOn 20 April 2010, a deep water oil well exploded in the Gulf of Mexico. The immediate effect wasthat it killed 11 people and injured 17 others. Oil leaked at a high rate which is difficult to calculate.Some estimates are around 40,000 barrels a day. The oil spill posed risks to the environment andaffected local industry.The impact of this oil spill depended on which parts of the coastline you look at. It is difficult tomeasure the effects because of seasonal changes in wildlife.Economic impact The government asked for 20 billion in damages from BP and BP’s share price fell. Local industries, such as fishing, were threatened. There was a ban on fishing in the affected area. Tourism declined.Environmental impact Plants and animals were completely covered in the oil. Seabirds, sea turtles, and dolphins havebeen found dead. Oil entered coastal wetland areas leading to a slow recovery. Fish stocks were harmed and productivity decreased.The size of the oil spill was one of the largest America had seen. However because the oil enteredwarm waters, organisms in the water helped to breakdown the oil. The overall effect may be less thanExxon Valdez Oil spill in 1989 which happened in colder water.Appendix 3a

The Impact of Pollution on Our Planet and Our Lives P12ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT CASE STUDYAir Pollution: Heathrow, UKAdapted from The Guardian 2/oct/12/heathrow-third-runway-air-pollutionWhat is the problem?“The main issue with Heathrow is it’s essentially in the middle of a major population centre,” saysProfessor Steven Barrett, director of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology laboratory for Aviationand the Environment and senior author of the study. “Also, because of the prevailing winds in the UK,emissions tend to get blown over the whole of London.”The researchers conclude that, based on 2005 data, UK airports contribute to 110 early deaths eachyear, mostly due to lung cancer and cardiopulmonary complaints. Of those, 50 can be attributed toHeathrow alone, they calculate.With government figures projecting a more than 50% rise in air travel over the next two decades, thepublic health effects are also expected to increase.What can be done?Many of the deaths could be avoided by relatively simple measures, Barrett argued. Airplanes get theirelectricity from on-board power units – small jet engines that are often left running while the planes areat the stands. Plugging into the airport electricity supply would reduce those emissions. As would theuse of electric vehicles for airport support operations. And using de-sulphurised fuel would add only2% to fuel costs, while reducing the health effects by 20%. Altogether, mitigation efforts could halvethe pollution from airport operations.“London Heathrow Statistics” by Seadart - Own work.

The Impact of Pollution on Our Planet and Our Lives P13ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT CASE STUDYWater Pollution: the Ganges River, IndiaAdapted from Wikipedia and the Cool Geography website: onment.htm of the GangesThe Ganges is the largest river in India with a significant religiousimportance for Hindus. It provides water to about 40% of India’spopulation across 11 states, serving an estimated population of 500million people or more, which is larger than any other river in theworld. Today, it is considered to be the sixth most polluted river inthe world.The Ganges River is a sacred Indian river that flows in the north ofthe country. Pollution of the Ganges has become so serious thatbathing in and drinking its water has become very dangerous.Causes The major polluting industry along the Ganges is the leather industry from which Chromium andother chemicals leak into the river. Another huge source of pollution is the nearly 1 billion litres of mostly untreated raw sewage thatenters the river every day. Inadequate cremation procedures result in partially burnt or unburnt corpses floating in the river.Cleaning effortsThe Ganga Action Plan (GAP) was set up in 1985 by the Indian government with British and Dutchsupport to build a number of waste treatment facilities. Under the GAP, sewage is intercepted andwater is diverted for treatment and several electrical crematoria have been built. The project is now inits second phase - GAP II.Appendix 3c

The Impact of Pollution on Our Planet and Our Lives P14ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT CASE STUDYIndustrial waste : Inner MongoliaAdapted from the Guardian website: /china-rareearth-village-pollutionPhoto: sludge-result-mining-create-tech/story?id 30122911The town of Baotou, in Inner Mongolia, is the largestChinese source of minerals used in smartphones, GPSreceivers, wind farms, electric cars and many moreproducts. The minerals are mined at Bayan Obo, 120kmfarther north, then brought to Baotou for processing.The problem:From the air it looks like a huge lake, but on the groundit turns out to be a murky expanse of water, in whichno fish or algae can survive. The shore is coated with ablack crust, so thick you can walk on it. Into this huge,10 square km pond, nearby factories discharge waterloaded with chemicals used to process the 17 mostsought after minerals in the worldThe polluted waters of the pond contain all sorts of toxic chemicals, but also including radioactiveelements that can cause cancer.The effects:Before the factories were built, there were many fields with vegetables growing. In 1958 the BaotouIron and steel company started to produce the minerals. In the 1980s the local people noticed thattheir vegetables would no longer grow, and over time farming decreased. Most of the farmers havemoved away. In just 10 years the population has dropped from 2,000 to 300 people. Residentsof Baotou were inhaling solvent vapour, particularly sulphuric acid, as well as coal dust. The localpopulation have also suffered physically.Appendix 3d

The maximum amount of pollution reduction is therefore equal to Q1. When the government decides to tax each unit of pollution, pollution is reduced as long as the tax per unit of pollution exceeds the cost producers face to reduce one extra unit of pollution. Producers will therefore cut pollution to the point where the tax equals the marginal .
