|The Superfund for Kids page developed by the EPA is intended to introduce children ages three and up to the basic concepts of the Superfund program. Currently, there are five options available for viewing. They were designed with different age groups in mind as explained in the table below:|
|Superfund Stories||When Greenville Turned Brown - An illustrated poem that explains the Superfund program's process based on a fictional site. This poem is intended for children ages 7 and up, or for anyone young at heart. |
|Word Search - A word game where children search a scrambled set of letters for words from The ABCs of Superfund. The word search is intended for children ages 8 and up.|
|Teach With Databases: Toxics Release Inventory||This is a publication assembled by the National Science Teachers Association, with support from the EPA, in order to take advantage of the wealth of data that has been produced since EPCRA's implementation. The activities focus on using TRI as a tool with which students (grade 9 - 12) and teachers can learn more about the chemical history of their community. Its seven chapters offer hands-on and computer-based activities which incorporate the methods used by private and government facilities to monitor and test chemicals into the chemistry curriculum.|
|Other Kids Links||This page provides additional environmental kids links, such as EPA Explorer's Club on the EPA Homepage, the Office of Water's Kid's Page and others. |
