Page, Andrew N.; Fragar, Lyn J.
Australian Journal of Rural Health, v9 n5 p216-21 Oct 2001
A study examining the effectiveness of a farm safety resource that employed toys and props presented the resource to 79 primary schoolchildren from 3 schools in New South Wales (Australia). Children's recall was assessed at posttests of 1, 14, and 28 days. Children exposed to the resource recalled more hazards than did control-group children. (Contains 32 references.) (TD)
