What is plaque?  What are cavities?   The 2nd graders have been busy learning about plaque, cavities, enamel, and the parts of the tooth.   Brushing your teeth is important, to avoid cavities.   The students had a 1st hand experience today when we practiced by brushing the "plaque" off of the "tooth".     Hard boiled eggs were soaked in coca cola overnight to create the "plaque"  (Yes, we are pretending).   The eggs were brown, gross, and disgusting.  Each child had a toothbrush, and were told to brush, and clean up the teeth.   We all understood the importance of brushing our teeth.   Enjoy the photos below:

Angel is scrubbing hard.  Get that plaque off, Angel!!!

Look how hard Matthew and Jaida are working.  :)

Say Cheese!   That egg was yummy!

I'm not so sure about this. 

Oh No!  Someone threw a toothbrush in the garbage.   My little helpers are determined to find it!  
 (And they did!!)
