Talking about looking after our teeth
Some things to think about after the story;
- Why is it important to go to the Dentist?
- In the story what happened to the boys teeth?
Looking after your teeth is important and we know that brushing them helps but, just like the story tells us, we need to be careful about what food we eat. Unhealthy food can hurt our teeth and makes us poorly.
Have a look at the pictures below of our mouths - there are white healthy teeth and yellow unhealthy teeth. Can you put the healthy food inside the healthy mouth and the unhealthy food in the unhealthy mouth?
This can be done either as a cut and stick activity if you have a printer or drawing activity, or just a discussion between yourselves and your children.
