Presidents and Dental Health

Shalom!

This week was a super interactive one as we learned about President’s Day and explored the importance of good dental hygiene and healthy eating.

We made flags and President Abe Lincoln with our hands and then put together a puzzle of the Presidents George Washington and Abe Lincoln using numerical order.

In P.E. we practiced jumping rope, hula-hooping and played parachute.

In Jewish Studies we learned about the mezuzah- what it’s for and what’s inside.

Then we made our own mezuzot!

We spent the week learning about good dental health and healthy eating.IMG_3517 IMG_3519 IMG_3520 IMG_3521 IMG_3522 IMG_3523 IMG_3524 IMG_3525 IMG_3532 IMG_3533 IMG_3534 IMG_3535 IMG_3536 IMG_3537 IMG_3539 IMG_3540 IMG_3542 IMG_3543 IMG_3544  IMG_3547

We practiced recognizing numbers and did dot-to-dot drawing.IMG_3548 IMG_3550 IMG_3551 IMG_3553 IMG_3554 IMG_3555 IMG_3556

We made tooth puppets.

We did a science experiment to see how different liquids affect our teeth- water, milk, juice and cola. We dropped an egg in each and made predictions about what would happen….

To find out you will have to keep reading…

We learned about different animals and how their teeth are the same as ours. IMG_3620

Our mystery readers were Simon’s aunt and uncle from New York!IMG_3635 IMG_3638

And so… to finish our experiment… we removed the eggs that had been submerged in the liquids overnight…

The ones in water and milk did not change colors. The ones that were in juice and cola turned icky brown!!

So we brushed the eggs that turned brown and they got lighter- but never went back to white! What does that tell you about what you eat and drink and the importance of brushing?
