1. Why do we have teeth and what are they for?


2. Watch the slide show 3 "To identify the different types of teeth in
humans and identify their functions".

3. On the worksheet (or in your workbook) describe each of the different types of teeth and what they are used for. When you have finished colour the incisors red, the canines blue and the molars green in the picture of the teeth (or draw some and colour them in).
