Why Lesson Planet?
Getting in the habit of practicing good dental hygeine is important for youngters. This lesson reinforces the importance. Learners have a class discussion about how they take care of their teeth, then create toothbrush holders out of clay. A nice touch would be to have a dentist or dental hygeinist come into the class and talk to the kids about their teeth. This lesson is based on the Arthur episode: "Arthur's Tooth."
