Study Up: Dental Hygiene Lesson Plans for Kids
Math and science books aren't the only things that should be stuffing your student's backpack. Dental hygiene lesson plans from Kool Smiles are a great way to teach your children about maintaining an A+ smile.
We have lesson plans designed for kids from Kindergarten through fifth grade that will teach your children about the importance of routine dental checkups or how to properly brush and floss their teeth. Each lesson plan is geared toward a different age so kids continue to learn healthy habits as they grow. Download a lesson plan for any age group or check out a sample PDF.
Our dental hygiene lesson plans are perfect for teachers and even include some fun demonstrations! We'll show you how to use a plastic bottle and some paint to explain to your kids how sugary foods affect their teeth and how brushing every day helps protect them.
Or, learn how use a foam board, felt and some egg cartons to show your kids the correct way to floss. With our lesson plan, your children will learn healthy dental habits while having fun too!
Dental Hygiene: A Lesson That Lasts a Lifetime
Just like other subjects in school, teaching children healthy dental habits at a young age sets them up for life. And just like math or science, kids learn best when teachers and parents make it fun. That's why we provide teachers and parents with the resources they need to educate kids on the importance of a healthy smile!
