Hazard House Workbook: A Workbook about Household Chemicals. Leader's Manual. Members Manual.
California State Dept. of Toxic Substance Control, Sacramento.
The two books, the leader's manual and the members' manual address one environmental problem people come into contact with on a daily basis: potentially hazardous household products. The purpose of the books is to educate community groups about hazardous materials. The member's manual shares information about hazardous items and provides facts to let the user decide what to do about them. In the two manuals, information and activities are presented in five sections about: (1) what hazardous household products are and where they are found in the home; (2) health risks hazardous products pose to people; (3) the issue concerning disposing of hazardous materials; (4) non-hazardous alternatives; and (5) activities to evaluate the members' expertise about hazardous materials. The leader's manual has a reduced version of each page from the members' manual. In the margin are tips and information bullets to assist the leader in implementing the activities. The members' manual presents 32 learning activities. (MDH)
