Students create pop-up books to remind themselves to take good care of those smiles!
Invite students to contact the American Dental Association to learn more about the latest recommendations to keep teeth and gums healthy. Search for on-line resources, brochures, and magazine articles on the topic, appropriate for the age of the students.
Allow time for students, working in small groups, to investigate the purpose for each of the ADA's recommendation for oral health.
To reflect their learning about teeth and gum health, students will plan a pop-up book about the subject. On white paper, use Crayola® Markers to list tips and recommendations to include on each page. Student groups brainstorm how to illustrate each idea with pop-up figures.
For each page of the book, students fold construction paper in half so the shorter sides meet. Make two cuts with Crayola Scissors into the fold for each pop-up tab. Each cut should go in from the fold one or two inches (2-5 cm). Fold tabs away from fold edge and then open paper and pull tabs through to the open side.
Draw pop-up figures with markers on construction paper. Cut out each figure. Put Crayola School Glue on each tab and press on figures. Dry.
Add written text to each page in colorful marker lettering. Writing should reflect learning from the research and interview portion of this dental health activity.
Arrange pop-up pages in order. Glue the back sides together.
Fold construction paper around the glued pages and glue to make the front and back cover of the book. Add a title and design the cover with markers.
Students share their individual books with small groups of classmates. What have they learned about the importance of dental health?
