Teaching Kids to Stop, Look, Listen

We all want to keep our kids safe. Teaching them how to look out for themselves is a key part of keeping harm away. Health Canada has a website with information for both teachers and parents about teaching kids about hazard symbols.

“The Stay Safe program teaches children to recognize the hazard symbols found on household chemical products in a fun and interactive way. Stay Safe has two components:

1. Two education guides for educators and caregivers: one aimed at preschoolers (3-5 years of age) and one for school-aged children (up to grade four)

2. An interactive on-line activity module for children

The educator’s guide provides the background information, while the on-line activities are fun and help children to remember the messages of the program.”
