My First Aid Kit

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Theme

The intention of this project was to orient the students to various necessary articles to be kept in a First Aid Box. Students researched on the e-encyclopedias about the articles, made a write-up on the computer and also a chart with a real First Aid Box.

Tips for Educators & Parents

For children a tape to cover cuts and wounds would be more important than ORS powder. Please do not discourage them and let them talk about the ‘important’ stuff first. Also, it is really ok if they break a thermometer or two and see the magic of mercury. Only be sure no one touches it and keeps faraway.
