Exploring teeth

As part of the children's learning about the digestive system, the children have been able to explore the difference types of teeth in their mouth and decide the possible function. They looked at the own teeth - some were even brave enough to look in their partners mouth after lunch -   and looked at the different shapes of teeth. We determined that some teeth were good for biting and cutting (incisors), some were good for ripping and tearing (canines) whilst others were good for holding and grinding food ( Pre molars and molars).
