Toxie the cat leads kids from room to room in a typical house, pointing out chemical hazards like carbon monoxide, lead, chlorine, and radon, in this interactive activity from the National Library of Medicine. After clicking on each hazard, students are given additional information about why the selected substance is dangerous to human and pet health, and where else it can be found.
This media asset was adapted from the National Library of Medicine's "Tox Mystery".
