Year 3 have been looking at the different types and functions of our teeth!Firstly we explored our own teeth …Then we filled in an investigation sheet to show whether that particular tooth was filled, missing or emerging. We then had to show which teeth were incisors, canines and premolars/molars.We watched a video about animals and their teeth… (link below)http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningzone/clips/different-teeth-for-different-purposes/2292.html Afterwards we thought about the functions of the 3 types of teeth…Incisors are for cutting and biting food, so that we can take a reasonable-sized piece into our mouthCanines are for stabbing into and gripping food.Premolars/molars are for chewing, crushing and grinding food into smaller pieces to help prepare it for swallowing.We now know that every tooth is important in its own special way!
