Discover more about lichens and what they can tell us about the air quality around us.
What are lichen?
They are grey, green or yellow plant-like organisms that grow on rocks, walls and trees.
Lichen can show us how clean or polluted the air we breathe is. This is because they are very sensitive to changes in their environment.
Watch the video below and download the guide to discover more.
What you'll need
Learn how to identify lichen species and what this means for your local air quality.
Fill in the missing words.
Lichen are made up of two tiny things called o________ which benefit from living and working closely together.
F________ give the lichen its shape and a________ give the lichen the food it needs to survive.
Lichen absorb nutrients from the surrounding air through p____________.
Lichen are found in many places all over the UK and around world. They come in many different shapes and colours.
Scientists study lichen to understand air quality because some species survive where levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) are high, and others where NO2 is low.
NO2 is a harmful gas produced by burning fossil fuels e.g. petrol for cars.
Think about the places where you would find nitrogen loving and nitrogen sensitive lichens.
Write down if you think the air may be clean or polluted.
Now it’s time to look at your ID Guide and explore lichens close to home. Are they nitrogen loving or sensitive?
A dream board is a great tool for teaching us all about goal setting - an important life skill.
Learning to set goals teaches us to take responsibility. We learn how actions can determine the outcome. And it’s a great way to build up confidence.
Adults, remember to cheer on children on as they make strides, pedals or jumps towards their goals.
The journey is just as important as achieving the goal itself.
Design an obstacle course in your home or garden. Or chalk draw your course on a pavement or path.
Remember to ask an adult for advice on where to set up your obstacle course. And follow government guidelines on social distancing.
What you might need
Remember to ask an adult for permission if you are using chalk. And always follow government guidelines on social distancing
Once you've created your course it's time to get active and have a go.
Have a think about what your ideal obstacle course would be along your road?
What things would you have in it if you could choose anything (bouncy castles, swings, rope ladders, zipwires)?
Why not draw out your street and design it? Do you think it would be better to have a fun thing like that instead of so many cars?

Fungi give the lichen its shape and alga give the lichen the food it needs to survive.
Lichen absorb nutrients from the surrounding air through photosynthesis.
