Help the WI DNR celebrate Clean Air Month this May by leading your students through an activity (or more than one!) from the Air, Air Everywhere Teacher’s Activity guide, which aims to teach 3rd, 4th & 5th grade students about air quality and the importance of clean air.
Teachers, please submit the poems/riddles created by your students as part of the Where’s the Air? activity in the Air, Air Everywhere guide to the Wisconsin DNR. One winner and two runners-up will be selected. The winning poems will be featured on the Wisconsin DNR EEK! (Environmental Education for Kids) web site. The winner will receive an award certificate AND a class set of “It all adds up to cleaner air” solar calculators. The teacher of the winning student will receive a certificate for a free Project Learning Tree, Project WILD, or Project WET workshop.
