Hazards on the Homefront

This 60-90 minute presentation shows students how to read hazardous product labels and teaches them proper use, storage, and disposal of such products. Students learn about common household products that can be hazardous to people and the environment, as well as safer alternatives. The presentation includes hands-on activities according to age group and time availability. Activities may include a fast-paced bingo game or an experiment to determine the more effective of two cleaning products.

The presentation is appropriate for 6th grade and older. We request groups of 10 to 30 students and are happy to schedule multiple presentations to accommodate everyone.
