Ágata y las Olimpiadas: Contaminación del aire y los derechos de niños y niñas

The Olympic Games in London this summer surely will leave us with new heroes and heroines and inspiring stories to tell.  Here’s another perspective on the hopes and dreams of young athletes.  La red por los derechos de la infancia en México produced this video about the impact of air pollution on children who live close to major roads in cities.  Students can compare/contrast the statistics and lifestyle represented in the video with their own experience, write or act out a response, or create their own videos.  Connecting unit themes include la niñez; los deportes y los pasatiempos; las ciudades; el medio ambiente.
