2nd Grade Studies Dental Health


As part of Healthy Living in Second Grade, the class completed an Open Wide! Dental Health Unit.   Some of the lessons they covered were:

  1. primary and permanent teeth

  2. brushing and flossing

  3. fluoride and toothpaste

  4. cavities

  5. why we should care for our teeth and gums

  6. how eating healthy foods is good for our teeth


As part of their study on the importance of caring for our teeth and how to care for our teeth, the children were taught all about the parts that make up their teeth. To conclude the dental health unit, the children completed an accurate model of a tooth, including labels.

The children were very excited during our study on teeth and by the end of the dental health unit, they were all experts in caring for their teeth!
