Dental disease is a big problem. Cavities can make it difficult for a child to eat, grow, attend school, and learn. Delta Dental of Colorado has created an oral health video and lesson plan to help teach kids in kindergarten through second grade the importance of oral health.
Check out our video, The Cleaning.
The kit contains:
- Two DVDs (in English & Spanish) of an animated video, The Cleaning, featuring Chopper, an animated cat, and the Tooth Fairy, who help a boy learn about the importance of dental health.
- A lesson plan that provides some ideas on how to convey the importance of oral health to a K-2 audience. A second lesson plan is available for additional years. (PDFs of all materials are provided in an enclosed CD.)
- A take-home oral health tip sheet (in English & Spanish) for parents on how to keep their child's smile healthy.
- A poster on teeth brushing techniques to hang in a classroom.
- A calendar that children can use to document how often they brush their teeth, a certificate of achievement from the Tooth Fairy, fun stickers, and coloring sheets.
Healthy Smiles for Colorado Kids: An Oral Health Lesson Plan for K-12 is provided free of charge as a community service of Delta Dental of Colorado Foundation.
