During these 10 minutes we spent with each group, I decided to engage the children using questions and activities. Some of these included the following: Discussion Discussion A: They are important because they allow us to chew or eat. They allow us to talk and hey improve our smile. Why are your Teeth Important? Why are your Teeth Important? A: Very important! If you lose these new teeth, no more grow in to replace these ones. So after you lose your baby teeth make sure to take care of your shiny new teeth! Is it Important to Take Care of your New Adult Teeth? Why? Is it Important to Take Care of your New Adult Teeth? Why?

The instructions were to cross out the junk food, and colour in the healthy food. Activities Activities Many students enjoyed colouring and were excited to answer my questions. The kids were intrigued by the idea that even super heroes have to brush their teeth! Results Results Brushing and Flossing Brushing and Flossing Brushing teeth! Brushing teeth! To keep the kids interested, I asked several questions about brushing. I had all of the important facts written out on a toth shaped paper. Some questions are as follows: Why is brushing important? Do you brush your tongue? Should you brush the spots you can't see? How long should you brush and how many times a day? How do you know it's time for a new toothbrush? Questions! Questions! In order for kids to learn they also need to have fun or they won't pay attention. To get the kids involved I let them pass around a small toy denture with a toothbrush. They all took turns demonstrating the Fone's Method of brushing on the mini teeth as well as pointing out all of the surfaces that needed brushing. Hands-on demonstration! Hands-on demonstration! Flossing! Flossing! I would ask the kids if they all flossed and I asked them several questions such as: How often should you floss? Do you floss BEFORE or AFTER brushing? Why is flossing important? How do you floss? Why is the see-saw motion better than forcing the floss between the teeth? Afterward, I would tell them all of the correct answers. Questions! Questions! To keep the children involved i squished green Play-Doh in some Lego pieces. The Play-Doh represented food stuck in the interproximals of the teeth while the Lego represented the teeth. I then proceeded on demonstrating how to floss on the Lego. Hands-on Demonstration! Hands-on Demonstration! I showed the children how to use flossers on the Plat-Doh. They placed the floss face down into the Play-Doh between the "teeth". They proceeded by using see-saw motions down between and around the "gums". I continuously asked them questions because repetition is key to memorization. Dual gripped Flossers Dual gripped Flossers The children began by grabbing pieces of floss about the size of their forearms. They then LOOSELY wrapped the floss around their fingers and explained why wrapping the floss is important. After using the see-saw motion into the Play-Doh, they made a 'C' shape around each tooth, giving each tooth around 3 strokes. Waxed Dental Floss Waxed Dental Floss After each demonstration I asked the kids which type of floss they prefere. They all said the flossers were easier and more fun. I then reviewed the important parts of flossing and encouraged them all to floss at least once a day, easiest before bedtime. Flossers vs Dental Floss Flossers vs Dental Floss Having groups of 5-6 kids each really helped with allowing every kid a turn with the demonstrations. The children really enjoyed the Play-Doh and most of all the chattering teeth. My group was extremely organized, we communicated well, and we worked as a team. Therefore, I believe our presentation was a success. Although I enjoyed working with my group, I didn't like being grabbed on and constantly interrupted. I had a headache in the end and I wouldn't volunteer to do this again. Conclusion
