Worksheet Overview

 If you smile at yourself in the mirror, or if you just run your tongue along them, it is obvious that your teeth aren't all the same.


You have sharp teeth shaped like little chisels at the front of your mouth. Alongside them are teeth that are more pointed and at the back of your mouth there are some big flat-topped teeth.




So what's good about having all these different teeth? Why not just have a mouth full of little pointy teeth for instance? The type of teeth we have is suited to the type of food we eat. Each tooth type let's us deal with food in different ways. 


In this worksheet you can test what you know about your teeth and what they do.
