8 The Face 3. The face, we know people by their faces. . We use our tongue for talking, when cheeky, we even poke it out! 5.Moustache, the hair under the nose is a moustache. 6. Ear ring, this goes into the pierced opening in the ear to look pretty. 7. Nose peg, in the old days, people had holes in noses to put a bone through. 8. Eyelashes, they keep dust from getting into our eyes. 9. Eyebrow, the eyebrows keep the sweat away from our eyes 0. Nose is for breathing and we use our nose for smelling things. . Nose hair, the hair in our nose protect from dust getting in. We sneeze out the dust when it gets in. . Teeth are used to bite and grind foods that we eat so its easier to swallow. 3. Lips are for talking and also for kissing! . Hair protects our head from the hot sun and also from the cold. 5. Long hair, Nowadays women have longer hair, men in the old days also had long hair. 6 .Big ears, ears that are unusually big can hear better that ones with normal ears!
