Testing Blood for Lead
(Community Environmental Health Kit)


Does Santiago have lead poisoning?

Key Learning Objective: Blood testing is necessary to identify lead poisoning.

  • Conduct and analyze a simulated blood test to determine a child’s blood lead level.
  • Interpret readings and charts to learn that even very low levels of lead can affect young children’s brain development.

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.
