Healthy or Not Healthy for Teeth Activity
As adults we have learned how certain foods are better for our dental health than others. We’ve learned that fruits and vegetables are in general a lot better for our teeth than things like soda or ice cream which bathe our teeth in sugar or other elements that can damage our dental hygiene.
By using this chart that has pictures of an assortment of foods you can talk with preschool students about what kinds of food-items are better for our teeth than other kinds and help them learn about what should be eaten more or less often.
With this in mind we have free printables that feature a happy tooth that can be cut-out along with foods that are more healthful such as carrots, apples, and healthful cereal.
We also have a printable of a sad tooth which can have the sugar-heavy foods put on or by it such as doughnuts, soda, and candy.
Happy and Sad Tooth
Tooth Template Printable
In addition, if students want to draw their own face on a tooth we have a blank tooth template as well that can be printed, drawn-upon and cut-out as well! By using these printables preschool students can learn all about dental health via the happy tooth and sad tooth. Click on the picture and print it once it loads at its full-size!
