What do we use our teeth for?

Posted on: 23 Sep 2014 by Weston Green School | Category: Key Stage 2, Year 3


Year 3 have been learning about healthy food and eating in Science this term. Last week, the children looked at different foods and worked out which teeth they used to eat them with.

They discovered that all our teeth are used to help us eat our food and each one has a different role. The incisors are at the front of the mouth and are used to bite the food. The canines are used to grip and help rip the food, and the molars are used to crunch and grind the food into smaller pieces for them to swallow. The children greatly enjoyed the activity and they also got to try some foods they previously did not like. The children have also been keeping a food diary to discover if what they eat on a weekly basis is good for them or not.
