Today we had students from NWTC's Dental Hygienist program come and visit our classroom to talk to us about dental health. They had some great hands-on activities to help us learn how to brush and floss our teeth and to show us what happens to our teeth when we drink too much soda. We got the chance to chew on a special purple pill that temporarily stained our teeth in the places that we missed when we brushed. (Remember doing this when you were a kid - but most likely with a red pill?) Most of us were amazed to see how purple our tongues were and that we need to brush those too.
Everyone got a goodie bag with a toothbrush, some floss and toothpaste in it. Ask your child to tell you more about the egg in the soda experiment and what they had to do to the egg.
