About This Quiz & Worksheet

Whether it's grit in your eyes, a bit of food caught in your windpipe or something else, the first thing your body naturally wants to do is get it out. Whether or not it's safe to remove it yourself depends on what the object is and where it is. On this worksheet/quiz combo, you will be tested on what to do if you inhale a foreign object through your nasal passages, get something in your eye, get a splinter stuck in your skin, or inadvertently swallow something sharp.
