Preventing Lead Poisoning
(Community Environmental Health Kit)


Identify sources of lead that are poisoning Tara’s family.

Key Learning Objective: Exposure to lead may come from many sources.

  • Test simulated samples of dust, water, soil, and pottery from a family’s home for lead.
  • Identify other sources of lead exposure.
  • Identify ways to prevent or reduce lead exposure.

NOTE: Science Take-Out Community Environmental Health (CEH) kits are simplified versions of our “regular” kits (shortened/modified activities and lower literacy).

CEH kits use hands-on activities to engage diverse community audiences in learning about environmental health issues. The kits also encourage discussions about ways to reduce exposures to environmental health hazards.
