Animals, including Humans
This term in science we have been learning about ANIMALS, INCLUDING HUMANS - focusing on the digestive system and teeth. We want the children to know:
We had a wonderful time learning about keeping our teeth clean and healthy. We used plaque disclosing tablets to show how well we have been cleaning our teeth. A plaque disclosing tablet helps to identify areas of a child’s teeth that they’ve missed after completing their oral care routine. They contain a harmless dye that reacts with the plaque that may remain on areas of the teeth after cleaning. When a child sees the dyed areas, they can easily identify trouble spots to focus their brushing efforts. We used these as a tool to help the children learn where they are missing and show them how to improve their brushing skills long term.
The Digestive System-
As part of our digestive system learning we did a practical lesson. Take a look at our pictures of our homemade digestive system models.
