Tippecanoe School Corporation
Dental Health in Second Grade at Mintonye
Kristy Delp

Mintonye Second graders have had an educational and fun filled February! The students began the month wondering if the groundhog would see his shadow. They learned about Friendship, Animal Habitats, Presidents, Science Experiments about the state of Matter, and Dental Health.

On Thursday, February 22nd, Morgan, a dental hygienist from the Tecumseh Dental Center, came to visit. She did an awesome job teaching the students how to properly care for their teeth. The students also learned about Healthy/Non-Healthy foods for their teeth. The second graders went back to their classrooms after the presentation and continued with activities that reinforced what they had learned. At the end of the day, every second grader took home their own bag of toothpaste, toothbrush, and floss!
