After looking at teeth in animals we are going to look at our own teeth.
Watch the following video first...
After lunch we each chewed a Dental Disclosing Tablet. It showed us what plaque is on our teeth!!! After, we all brushed out teeth following the poster below for 2 whole minutes.
Once we had cleaned our teeth, we chewed another Dental Disclosing Tablet to see if we had cleaned our teeth well enough and where we had missed. Maybe you could try cleaning your teeth using the poster too!
Can you make your own poster explaining how to brush teeth?
This week the children in Willow are going to be investigating herbivore, carnivore and omnivore poo. I have attached below a recipe to make the poo (it's not real don't worry!) if you fancied having a go at this at home.
Comparing Herbivores, Carnivores and Omnivores
What is a carnivore? What does it eat? Can you name any animals that are carnivores? Discuss what types of teeth carnivorous animals need (sharp teeth to rip through meat). Try eating meat at home, what teeth do you use? Look at your self eating with a mirror.
Below I have attached a Power point for you to look at the different types of animals and so you can look at the teeth. Try and guess what the animals are by the skull.
What is a herbivore?
Discuss what a herbivore is. What animals are herbivores? What do they eat?
Do you have any foods in your house that a herbivore would eat? Try eating a carrot and, using a mirror, look at what teeth you use.
Using Power point below look at the teeth of herbivores and guess the different animals.
