Activity 1: animal teeth

Show your child the images of different animal teeth. 

Discuss what each animal might eat.

Explain to your child that we are animals too - we are a type of mammal. Get a mirror, and have a look at your teeth. Why do you think we have strong teeth? - explain that most humans are omnivores which means we eat meat and plants. Some humans do not eat meat because of their personal or religious beliefs. We call them vegetarian.
