Week in Review: Teeth
This week our topic was teeth. Here are some of our tooth related activities:
We used some tooth brushes and chattering teeth from the dollar store to practice our tooth brushing technique.
This marshmallow tooth game from Teaching Heart was a big hit.
We painted with toothbrushes.
We brushed the "plaque" off of hard boiled eggs.
We discussed which foods might make your teeth "happy," or "sad."
We gave an apple a cavity, and watched it decay. The kids drew their observations day by day.
If you're looking for some links for a dental related unit, here's a few to get you started:
Teaching Heart's Dental Health Unit (Many of the ideas above came from here.)
Oral B Teaching Tools
Here are some of the books we used, (via an affiliate link.) :
