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.) :
