Find the Teeth!
Supplies and Preparation
- White egg carton cut apart to look like teeth.
- Permanent markers to draw teeth on cups or plates.
- Chart paper that has been divided into 20 numbered boxes.
Hide “teeth” in the sand table. Encourage children to find the teeth that are buried in the sand and place onto the numbered chart. At intervals, count the teeth that have been found with the children.
Prompt thinking through questions. How many teeth did you find? Do you think you have more teeth in your mouth? How many do you think you will find? Why do you think that?
