Jam and Smelly Eggs

"I'm going to get my mum to do this tonight, cover her fingers with jam
and show her how to use the floss!"
Not outdoor learning I know, but this was memorable learning in action.
Yr3 were finding out about healthy teeth, good food choices, and keeping
teeth clean. Flossing fingers covered in jam was one activity, and
another was seeing how acids destroys calcium (using boiled eggs as a
substitute)... great fun!


Modeling mythical animal jaws
As part of the same Yr3 teeth topic we used found objects from the
school grounds (along with an alarming colour of plasticene for the
gums) to construct carnivore, herbivore and omnivore jaws for mythical
monsters. This generated good conversations about the kinds of foods the
monsters ate. Bark chips make great incisors, twigs for the canines, and
stones for the molars. Active hands-on learning for all!
