An Environmental Health Activity Booklet for First Nations Kids
The environment is anywhere you are - where you live, play, and learn. Your environment is indoors, outdoors and even under your bed!
Sometimes things in the environment can make people sick. The activities on this website will show you lots of ways to help your family and friends stay healthy. You can check your answers to the activities here.
If you need to boil your water, boil my water too!
All plants and animals, including people, have to drink water. But sometimes our water gets germs and chemicals in it. You and your family can help keep your water clean.
If your community receives a Boil Water Advisory/Order, you must boil any water you use for drinking, cooking, making ice cubes, washing food, and brushing your teeth. This should be a rolling boil for at least one minute.
Do not drink water directly from a rubber hose, especially if the hose has been in the sun all day. The rubber can break down and leak toxic chemicals.
GAME: Print out the two following images and circle 7 differences. Don't miss anything, watch carefully!
