L.C: To identify different types of teeth and their functions

For our science topic this week we are going to be learning about the digestive system.

We will start this topic by looking at the mouth and teeth.

Watch the video in the link below.

Types of teeth

Humans have four main types of teeth:

1. Incisors

Incisors help you bite off and chew pieces of food.

2. Canines

These teeth are used for tearing and ripping food.

3. Premolars

These are smaller molars that help you crush and grind food.

4. Molars

These help you crush and grind food.

Watch the video all about the different types of teeth.

Once you have finished, look in the mirror and see if you can identify the different types of teeth you have. 
You may not have all of your Molars yet. How many do you have?
