The ABC's of Poison Prevention: A Teacher's Guide
Our Teacher's Guide contains lesson plans and corresponding activities for teachers working in pre-school through grade 3. Lessons designed for babysitters have been added as well as additional activity sheets, a poison safety checklist and a Poison Ranger certificate, for use with students to recognize their efforts in course completion.
Based on research conducted with our target audience, we developed a Look-alike Flipchart containing pictures of our look-alike products for use with our poison education programming. Look-alikes are matched sets of one poison matched with a similar looking food product, showing just how easy it is to make a mistake!

The program includes information on the safe use and storage of medicine as well as safe disposal methods. Teens are also informed of the appropriate use of a poison center. The three videos now available through www.youtube.com include:
