In acknowledgement of Science Week, Badger Class have been learning about an integral part of the human body - the teeth.
We began the week investigating the effects of different drinks on tooth enamel. We used eggs as their shell has similar chemical compositions to tooth enamel. We have immersed eggs in different drinks and are observing the effects throughout the week.
We have also investigated the importance of tooth paste and the properties toothpaste has to aid in effective teeth cleaning, including its ability to foam to help dislodge plaque and debris in the mouth.
We are recording and discussing the results to make conclusions about tooth hygiene.
