TEETH TOUR

k-8th grade

The “Teeth Tour” is the Everhart Museum’s *new* spring 2018 guided tour. Students will travel through each of the Everhart Museum’s permanent galleries exploring dental history through multi-sensory activities, group collaboration and discussion. Students will investigate items in the Museum’s new handling collection while on a guided tour with our museum docent staff.

The tour includes a walk-through of the rocks and minerals gallery where we will discuss what’s in a tooth by identify the minerals that make up teeth and the metals and gems we use to repair our pearly whites. In the fossil gallery, students will investigate dinosaur teeth and tooth fossils, as well as a timeline of teeth in the prehistoric periods.

In the bird gallery, we will discuss beak adaptation. After introducing five different categories of beaks, students will explore those beaks in action through videos and audio recordings. Students will also participate in a hands-on activity to better understand the mechanics of beaks and what and how birds eat.

And on the second floor, students will be taken back in time through our fine art collection. By exploring art from ancient Egypt all the way to America in the Roaring Twenties, students will learn about the history of dentistry and oral health care through the study of portraiture and our ethnographic collection.
