Itamar – Air Pollution

This is my presentation about air pollution.

As you can see in areas of South America and Australia  there is less pollution because there is a lot of jungles in those areas.

In north America  and Scandinavia there is a lot of places that no one live there so no  much air pollution.

But in China Europe and Asia there is a lot of factories and no so much empty place to live.

It happened when the air contains gases and dust in harmful amounts.

The effects from air pollution are

Long term:Respiratory infections, heart disease, stroke and lung cancer

Short term: difficulty in breathing, wheezing, coughing,  and asthma

Why is hepend?

There is 2 Reasons


volcanic eruption

Paragraph 1


So I choose this topic because I wanted to know more on what sports can give you more than only physical benefits.


This topic affects me and my family because we are a family that does a lot of sports and I also do a lot of sports so I wanted to know more about what can sports can give you.


I already knew that sports can give you physical benefits, can help you stay fit, can give you more physical and can reinforce your body, but I wanted to know more.


So I can connect to this topic, because I do a lot of sports and that sports is a big part of my life, and I already had some lesson where I was learning about being healthy and sports is a good way to stay fit but I knew that there was more so I wanted to make my health buzz on this topic, all the things that I knew was things that I learned in a class, but I wanted to know more.


So as I have already said before this research is relevant to me because sports is a big part of my life and it is one thing that I do a lot, and I think that sport is very important for your youth development so I wanted to do my Health Buzz on it.


This issue is relevant to teenagers because it is important to do sports to improve your physical, mental and psychological health as a teenagers


Paragraph 2


In this issue, I learned that sport is very important for youth development (also teenagers) because sports can give you higher, expectations (grades), and attainment, greater personal confidence and self-esteem, greater connections with school— that is, greater attachment and support from adults, stronger peer relationships, greater family attachment and more frequent interactions with parents, more restraint in avoiding risky behavior, greater involvement in volunteer work, all of that because you might have some connections with the teachers in sports and this can make a good relationship with the teacher and the same with your parents. When, you would like to go make some sports, you can go with your parents and this will reinforce your relationship. Sports can make you more confident because after making sports, you feel more ready to confront any problems. Also many studies focus on the effects of sport on the five “C’s”—competence, confidence, connections, character, and caring—which are considered critical components of positive youth development. Sports may also reduce anxiety and stress. So sports also improves your social interaction.


This issue expands my learning because, I thought that sports could only improve your physical health and your self esteem, so that learning gave my more knowledge on what sports.


I think that what I found is true because by making sports I feel more confident and self-esteem and because of sports I was able to make more connections with friends at school and I also have greater expectation for my future, so I think that we should do sports because it is a good way to improve your youth development.


One thing that really surprised me is that many studies focus on the effects of sport on the five “C’s”—competence, confidence, connections, character, and caring, I was surprised because I didn’t think that many studies was focusing on this subject and it was also surprising that the five “C’s” were all of them important for your youth development.


My thinking slightly changed because before I thought that sports could just improve your self-esteem, confidence, I didn’t think that sports could improve your school performance. But in my thinking, I always thought that sports was important and could improve your lifestyle.


I don’t really have any misunderstanding because I can connect to all the advantages/benefits of sports, so I don’t really have any misunderstanding.


Some problem/disadvantage of this issue is that to have does advantage you should do sports regularly, for example three times a week, it shouldn’t be like once a month, so the problem is that it takes time but it is worth it, so if you don’t have any time to do sports this is a problem because it takes a lot of time to do sports, not sports of 15 minutes, sports should be at least 1 hour or more. So you should make some time for sports if you want to improve your lifestyle by doing sports, you might need to remove things in your schedule, for example if one of your things in your schedule is playing 5 hours of video games. You could reduce it by two hours so you can get 3 hours of sport additional, for example.


I am sure that some people can connect to this issue, and I can connect this issue with the healthy unit in wellness.
