Home “Toxic” Home – Student Assignment


Chemical products are useful, but have negative effects on our health and the environment. There are many environmentally friendly alternatives to chemical products that can reduce the exposure of toxins.Our homes and communities are filled with hidden chemical toxins.

In this assignment, students analyze the home and community and find the hidden toxins that are found in common products and in our environment.  Once the research is complete, students create an informational poster/video to warn people about the toxin they think is most dangerous.
