Tox Mystery


Sometimes "The Nanny State" can be creative, if a bit out-of-touch. In "Tox-Mystery," presented by The National Institute of Health's Department of health and Human Services, users enter a large suburban colonial (not too common in the inner-city) to discover "Toxie," the-talking-cat, who leads them on a tour of its seven rooms and garage to discover the various health hazards (paint-thinner, lead-based paint) hidden in every-day objects. A good jumping-off place for a science lesson, it has a "For Teachers" page with suggestions and extra activities.
