Does Santiago have lead poisoning?

Time To Complete Time to complete: Approximately 20-30 minutes + discussion time

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. Each CEH kit contains materials to be shared by two participants.
