Terrific Teeth: Dental Health Month Activities

Toddler Bites submitted a thematic unit about health teeth. 

Mrs. Wheeler put together some toothy grin math games

The Popes enjoyed many clever activities while exploring dental health.  I especially love the flossing activity using yarn, mega blocks, and play dough.

The Teacher's Corner shared several writing prompts that are appropriate for February, with some of them focusing on healthy teeth.

1st Grade with Miss Snowden used eggs in a healthy teeth science experiment.

Mrs. Kilburn's Kiddos also has a great thematic dental health unit.  Her post is stuffed with great toothy links! I especially appreciated his list of appropriate books.

For a fun craft extension perhaps your students would enjoy making their own Teeth Monsters like these from Long Thread.


  1. We did a dental health unit in the fall and had a blast!

    Here's a link:

    Love these ideas!

  2. I love the Monster Tooth Pillow! That has to be the cutest thing ever.
