Toxie the Cat Speaks Spanish
Toxie the Cat ahora habla español.
Toxie, the ToxMystery guide cat, has gone back to school and can now speak Spanish. ToxMystery gamers can now move between English and Spanish as they explore the ToxMystery “house of hazards.”
The new ToxMystery en español has a “Para los padres” page giving parents more detailed information about potential household hazards. The “Para maestros” page is for teachers and has lesson plans and downloadable classroom activity pages in Spanish. ToxMystery can be used in science, health, and even for teaching in Spanish and English language classes.
ToxMystery (http://toxmystery.nlm.nih.gov) is purrfect for 7-11 year olds (and fun for all ages) to learn about possible chemical hazards around the home. ToxMystery is an e-learning game that uses animation, sound effects and positive reinforcement to teach students about environmental health hazards around the home.
Come play with Toxie and see if you can find the hazards in English and en español!
