Air Pollution



This project is intended for Secondary 3 Pure Chemistry students to research on air pollution and to create a wiki page collaboratively by using information available on the Internet.



At the end of this project, you should be able to:

  • state some common air pollutants and their sources
  • describe the effect of these pollutants on health and the environment
  • discuss possible solutions to the problems that arise from some of these pollutants
  • appreciate any other environmental issues related to air pollution



Part 1 (Group Work) :

Create a wiki page that should contain at least the following sections:

  • Names of Team Members
  • An overview of air pollution
  • Information about three major pollutants such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, methane, ground-level ozone and unburnt hydrocarbons

          For each pollutant,

          (a)     highlight key sources

          (b)    discuss some effects on health and the environment

          (c)     state possible solutions to the problems caused

  • Information and issues related to one of the following areas :

          (a)     global warming

          (b)    photochemical smog

          (c)     ozone depletion

          (d)    air pollutant index used by Singapore and one other country

  • A reference section that includes links of all websites you obtained information from:

          The references should be cited in the following format : [name of website] (web link)

          For example :

            national geographic (http://environment.nationalgeographic.com/environment/global-warming/pollution-overview/)


          Plagiarism is strongly discouraged.


Your wiki page will be assessed on:

(1)     content

(2)     organisation

(3)     aesthetic

(4)     originality


Part 2 (Individual Peer Review & Reflection) :

Read up the wiki pages set up by other groups from your class. After reading, select two wiki pages and write your reflection using the template provided below.

Click on the link to download the Reflection Worksheet for this activity. (Chemistry Wiki Reflection.doc)


Print a copy of your reflection and submit to your Chemistry teacher.


You will be working in groups of 3-4. Below are the groupings, as well as links to their group pages.
