List of contents

Photos of la manguera and el macho

This innovative teaching tool, played like bingo, will make pesticide safety training sessions more interesting and enjoyable and help workers retain more of what they have been taught.

A caller reads a question in Spanish from a card drawn from the deck. The other players check their boards for the answer. All players gain as they learn and relearn basic chemical-safety rules.

How to order

This publication is available from the UC ANR Communication Services catalog. It is also available by mail, by telephone, or through the ANR sales offices and many UC County Cooperative Extension offices. For locations and more information, see "How to Order Publications."

Important Messages

The illustrations and messages on the 54 cards highlight important farmworker pesticide use and safety concerns to pierce cultural barriers hindering effective communication of health and safety information to Spanish-speaking workers.

Each package consists of 54 cards, 16 game boards, and complete instructions in both Spanish and English. All game pieces are in Spanish. Printed in full color, they are on heavy card stock so they will last through many sessions.
