February is Children's Dental Health month, but any time of year is appropriate for this unit, which includes a reading comprehension, and several science experiments perfectly designed to get children interested in the health of these "visible bones".
Students read a classic short story of generosity and gluttony, then research and discuss health issues from the story and their own lives. A cornucopia of science, literature, and writing ideas, ideal for middle school or advanced upper elementary.
Start the year with this bulletin board and chart the number of lost teeth among your students all year. Pages for recording lost teeth every month, certificates for lost teeth, class survey of results, and monthly graph included.
