February is children's dental health month and, in the spirit of healthy teeth, Kristin of First Grade Teaching designed a fantastic tooth measuring activity that is sure to be a hit with your preschoolers too! Here's the basics:

baby block 1 Provide your students with a worksheet of teeth shapes to cut out.
baby block 2 Invite your students to use these cutouts to measure the hygiene items - the toothpaste, toothbrush, floss, and mouthwash.
baby block 3 Have students record how many teeth long each hygiene item is on their summary worksheet.
baby block 4 Place students into groups and invite them to compare their answers, remeasuring to settle any differences.

You might consider providing different size tooth cutouts for extra measuring fun or having students complete the activity using dental floss and a ruler. Be sure to visit First Grade Teaching for the worksheet downloads and close children's dental health month out right!

Happy Measuring! signature
