Big Sister has her first wiggly tooth. She is 6 years and three months. We have been talking about teeth for a while since many of her friends have lost a tooth, or have wiggly ones too. With the little time left before our trip, I decided to put together a mini teeth study. Above you can see the materials that I gathered. On top you can see books I found at our local library.
Next, since Big Sister chose it already today, let me tell you about this cute hands-on learning tool. My husband found the EIN-O's box kit for teeth similar to this one. Note: ours says teeth instead of teeth care, and was $8 at a teacher store.
It comes with 32 permanent (removable) teeth, lower and upper jaws, base, support rod, and a little guide. In this picture, Big Sister was pulling the teeth apart.
She decided to arranged them on her own.
Both kids worked on putting the teeth in the jaws.
I read them a book about why it is very important to floss everyday. Little Guy decided to floss the model.
I will be adding more images and descriptions of the other materials as we get to use them.
