National Children's Dental Health Month

This month, my students had several fun activities planned around TEETH, and ended the month with an egg-citing experiment about the effects of drinks on children's teeth.

I love that movie! But I digress... What Effects Do Drinks Have On Teeth? is a fun week-long experiment where students will collect data on what happens to eggs when exposed to various drinks. I will warn you that the cups smelled bad by the end of the week, but my kiddos really enjoyed it. The parents at our Academic Fair enjoyed it, too. So did our school nurse. She gave each of my students a toothbrush and toothpaste, and our school counselor used an entire lesson to teach the proper procedure. In my packet, I also included a how-to writing prompt on brushing teeth.
