Cavity Clean Up


Play this dentist themed game with your students as a way of practising their counting and one-to-one matching skills.

To begin playing each child will need a game board, whiteboard marker and toothbrush.

The students can play the game in 2 different ways.

Firstly they can roll the dice and then draw decay onto that number of teeth, the first student to have decay on all of their teeth wins.

Another way of playing (the way most students enjoyed playing it) is to draw a spot of decay on all of the teeth. Then roll the dice and using a toothbrush the student will brush decay off that number of teeth.

There are 6 different game boards available – perfect for small group work!
