THE IMPORTANCE OF BRUSHING

 

Materials
blue, white, red construction paper (size can vary)
scissors
glue
white paint
paint brushes
yellow marker

 

 

Directions:


Day One: 

 

Have each student cut out two red construction paper lips (You may want to make a pattern for the students to trace and cut out) and lots of white construction paper teeth (square pieces).

 

Have each student glue their lips and their teeth to a piece of blue construction paper.

 

Discuss the importance of brushing teeth each night before bed, plaque forms on our teeth, which can cause cavities, or areas of decay.


After the students leave for the day, use a yellow marker to color some teeth on each student's project.

 

 

Day Two:

 

The next day, explain to the students that the teeth on their projects didn't get brushed and plaque has formed on them.

 

Have each student "brush away" the plaque with a toothbrush and toothpaste (paint brushes and white paint).
