Forecast Earth: Air Aware
A 20 minute video co-produced by The Weather Channel and EPA. In 4 segments: ground level ozone, with an emphasis on asthma; particulate pollution; air pollution in national parks; EPA efforts to mitigate. EPA's Air Quality Index is highlighted throughout. Excellent for class. Download here: Air Now Movies

EPA animated explanation. Download here: Air Now Movies

Allergy Planet: BBC documentary, available online: http://www.documentary-log.com/d357-allergy-planet/


How To Simulate Asthma
Very goofy clip (5 minutes) showing how to stimulate asthma by running around then trying to breathe through a straw. Probably is a good hands on experiment. Also links to other asthma videos, such as talking heads about different asthma drugs.

The blue babies video -- though not about asthma directly, it is about what hazardous exposures do to you. And also (like the one above) shows how increcibly articulate moms can be.
