Dinosaur Teeth

As part of our dinosaur studies we have compared our teeth to dinosaurs. We looked at our teeth in the mirror and felt them with our fingers. We noticed that we have some sharp teeth at the front and some flat wide teeth at the back. We talked about the different foods we eat - meat, vegetables, fruit, bread, pasta etc and that we use different teeth for different foods. 

 We already knew that some dinosaurs ate meat and some ate leaves, trees and grass. We were then very clever and learned the scientific names for these different groups - Carnivores (meat eaters) and Herbivores (leaves, trees and grass eaters).

Once we knew this we could then inspect some replica dinosaur skulls to decide if they had sharp teeth to eat meat so were carnivores or had flatter blunt teeth for leaves, grass and trees so were herbivores.
