Dental Health month includes learning for kids

The Kindergarten and First Graders participated in some fun activities during their Dental Health Unit.

Students learned how to properly brush and floss their teeth.

They got to practice flossing using legos, playdough and floss.

Students also learned how sugar can cause plaque to grow in our mouths if we don’t brush our teeth.

They saw how the plaque grew in an experiment called, “Plaque Attack.”

Students received toothbrushes and a toothbrushing tracking chart from Southwest Health and Human Services in Marshall.
