In 5th grade science students experimented with eggs representing their teeth. They soaked in tea, grape soda, and fruit punch energy drink, for 17 hours. Students made observations, then brushed the teeth with 3 different toothpaste. The next day they made observations about all the eggs and how each toothpaste helped or didn't help. We then cracked and peeled one that was already cracked and one that was not. We were able to see how the inside of our teeth look when not taken care of properly. The final step to this experiment was to write a letter to one of the following: toothpaste company or a dentist, so that we could report our results.
