This week's theme was teeth and the tooth fairy. Another thing I changed this week is I added a big dry erase board and a cork board to the wall where we do school. So here's what it looked like at the end of the week:
What did we do this week?
Used toothbrushes to paint with:
Thank God for nontoxic paint!
Drew what we thought the Tooth Fairy looks like
Bought teeth with pennies
Made the first entry in their journal
Did an experiment with hard boiled eggs
Then experimented to see which worked better:
Brushing with water
Or with toothpaste
Painted mouth pictures...It's hard to see in the picture but they used sponges to make white teeth. Then we mixed the white and red paint to make pink!
Look ma! I'm a mess!
Whitened yellow teeth
The paint was mixed with mint extract to make it like tooth paste.
And had a yummy snack (ok, well more like 10 snacks but this is the only one worth mentioning)
It looked better in the picture that was in the curriculum.
