    This module is designed for elementary school teachers and is meant to complement existing life science curricula in oral health at both state and local levels and to be consistent with the National Science Education Standards. The module's goals are to help students understand a set of basic scientific principles related to oral health, to experience the process of scientific inquiry and develop an enhanced understanding of the scientific methods, and to recognize the role of science in society and the relationship between basic science and human health. The six lessons in this module are (1) what do mouths do? (2) open wide—what's inside? (3) let's investigate tooth decay, (4) what lives inside your mouth? (5) what keeps your mouth healthy? and (6) what have you learned about the mouth? The module is organized into the following sections: (1) implementing the module, (2) using the CD-ROM, (3) using the student lessons, and (4) the student lessons. Additional sections contain resources for teachers, a glossary, references, and reproducible masters in English and Spanish. The enclosed CD-ROM contains an introduction to the National Institutes of Health; videotape clips, animations, and interactive games required to teach various activities within the lessons; supplemental animations for enhancing students' understanding of concepts presented in the print materials, and printable files of the module.
