Students take an up close look at animal teeth during AG in the Classroom lesson

Students looking at animal teeth.

Many of our littlest Spartans have toothless grins as they lose their baby teeth. What would it be like if instead of human teeth, they grew new animal teeth, fangs or tusks instead?

Today students in EK and K learned about animal teeth and how animals use their teeth  for hunting, eating and protecting themselves. They even got to see some of those teeth up close. It was all part of their Agriculture in the Classroom lesson on animal adaptation and animal skulls.

After listening to a funny story about what it would be like to have shark teeth, snake fangs, elephant tusks and other types of animal teeth, the students had the chance to examine the teeth in the skulls of  a fox, raccoon, beaver, horse and pig.
