Experimental Show for Kids: „What is dangerous“ This show for pre school and primary school pupils has been developed by the Institute for Work and Health of the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV). The show has been performed more than 13 time by now, 227 enthusiastic children, nurses and teachers could be advised about hazards and hazardous situations in everyday life. The aim of the show is to enable the children to identify hazards, to gain knowledge about appropriate behaviour and to train this behaviour by way of example. The experimental show contains: - experiments with household chemicals show dangers when handling apparently nonhazardous things - a quiz game about hazard symbols - a noise traffic light to show harmful impacts of noise - appropriate skin care is trained by using the “fluorescence method” - right behaviour in case of fire and how to use a fire alarm In this experimental show, especially contiguity is emphasised, which means the coalescence (a confluent effect) of different experience contents: demonstrating, experiencing, identifying and recognising hazard by all senses at the same time. This effects are of high importance for this target group, because non- attention and disinterest can easily occur.
