National Children's Dental Health Month

Calling all educators!  February is National Children's Dental Health Month.  The American Dental Association provides a great resource for quick lesson plans of 10-30 min that help to educate children on the importance of oral health, and gives guidelines for staying healthy. The lesson plans are directed towards specific age groups to ensure the students are engaged.

Also, this is a GREAT resource for educating everyone on the long term effects of drinking soda pop and giving suggestions for healthier drink options:
