Tantalizing Teeth in Year 4!

This week, Year 4 have moved onto our second goal in our Science Unit: Animals including Humans. We are now focusing on the different types of teeth and their different roles they play when we eat our food. 

Children had to be especially reflective this lesson, as they were mindful about the types of teeth that they used to eat an apple. Children froze whilst eating their apple...in their word wave, they had to name the teeth that they were using in that position! 

Srinika said, "My incisors bite and slice into my food!"

Livi said, "The teeth that tear food are both the pre molars and canines but the pre molars do one extra job; they crush food."

Taylor said, "My molars grind the apple."

Thabang said, "Without teeth we wouldn't be able to digest our food!"
