In preschool, we have explored this important health topic through many whole-group discussions, and some learning-center activities.
During whole-group, we discussed the importance of brushing your teeth as your teeth help you to do many things, like "eat", "talk", and "sing". With this, we discussed the 'tools' we use to clean our teeth - toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and/or mouthwash and the proper way to use them. We also discussed what happens if you do not take good care of your teeth, such that you could have too many germs on your teeth which can eventually cause cavities. Last, but certainly not least, we also shared some stories about going to the dentist!
