This website is designed to broadly educate students about acid rain, including: its definition; its cause; the various effects that is has on humans, the environment, and buildings and objects; what is being done to reduce its occurrence. In addition it offers students several ways that they too can help reduce acid rain, including asking their parents to modify some of their routines. The site achieves this through informational text, and then reinforces it through several interactive and fun games and activities.
