Teeth fall out due to rotting and decay at the root, which is likely the result of improper dental hygiene (ie. not flossing, brushing teeth, etc.). There are many causes of theeth falling out including but not limited to: -severe damage to the roots -exposure of the root for a period more than a few hours -tooth decay -brittle bones "Baby" teeth generally fall out because the tooth underneath grows enough to push out the tooth as well as any strong pulling or jarring of the tooth When permanent teeth start to grow underneath your baby teeth, they dissolve the roots connecting your baby teeth to your gums.

Children have always been fascinated by trees. Trees are great to climb, provide clever hiding places, create the best forts, hold tire swings and provide shade for playing underneath. Introduce children to the trees with tree identification and show them how trees provide shelter and homes to creatures of all kinds whether the tree is alive or dead.

Tree identification starts at the library. Have the children find different books on trees. It is a good idea to check ahead in case the library does not offer enough tree books. If that is the case, visit a couple of libraries and bring the books to the library. By planning far enough ahead it is even possible to send home notes and have the children provide some of the books themselves.

Have each child choose a different tree as their subject. Before letting them choose, pick a few trees that are in the schoolyard or at a park (for a field trip) that everyone can visit at some later time. Have each child write a short paragraph about their tree and bring in some leaves, pinecones, pods or whatever the tree offers, to share. If the tree they have chosen is not near them then they can bring in a picture of the tree, a collage (with prints from the internet) or even a drawing. Visit the tree in the schoolyard or park and discuss the bark, shape of the leaves, how tall the tree is and any wildlife spotted. Leaves can be taken back to the room for leave pressings and rubbings.

Discuss the creatures that make the trees their home. Birds nest in trees, owls live in their knotholes, possums sleep hanging from their branches, and insects burrow in the wood, sleep in a chrysalis or live underneath the leaves. Teach the children how even dead trees provide homes to creatures such as salamanders that live underneath the rotting log, spiders that eat the decaying matter as well as one third of all woodland birds.

Children will learn to appreciate trees not only for the fun they provide but for the benefits they bring to the animal world as well.

Children's milk teeth naturally fall out, to be replaced by their adult teeth. Adult teeth are not replaced once they fall out.
