Type: Lesson/Unit Plan


As an educator, you can play a vital role in teaching children about poison prevention.  Young children are at the greatest risk for unintentional poisoning.  The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, in cooperation with Department’s primary contractor for poison information, the Nebraska Regional Poison Center, has created this lesson plan that makes it fun and easy to teach this important topic. The lesson plans are designed to provide you with tools to instruct and encourage poison prevention education for pre-school-age children and their parents.  Many educators choose to use these lesson plans during National Poison Prevention Week, which occurs during the third week in March each year.
