5) W hat foods can the boy eat to keep his teeth and
gums healthy? What do you see in this picture?
Natural foods, with no sugar added, are the best.
The foods you grow yourself and local foods
from the market are better than sweet foods
from the store.
6) How can we clean our teeth?
Carefully is the
important word to
remember. Clean your
teeth at least once a day, carefully brushing every
part of every tooth—outside, inside, and top. Be
very careful to push your brush between your
teeth. That is where the germs and food collect
to make acid.
If you do not have a toothbrush, you can make
one from a stick. Toothpaste is not necessary.
Clean water is enough.
Chapter 12 in Helping Heath Workers Learn is full of ideas on how to make
and use pictures effectively. Once you have a good original, you do not need
to be an artist to make a good copy. Here is an easy method that can involve
Place thin see-through paper over the original drawing. Carefully trace a copy.
Now place the copy on a new sheet of heavy paper. Pressing firmly with a
pencil, retrace all of the lines on the thin copy paper.
Remove the tracing
paper. Pressure from
the pencil has made
fine lines on the
poster paper. Redraw
them with a pencil so
they stand out clearly.
Your copy is now
ready for coloring.
And you can use your
copy paper again to
make another copy.
