[THEME SONG BEGINS]


>> RACHEL: Hi folks! It's time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show!


Start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side, and brush the inside, outside and chewing side of each tooth. 


>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!


[THEME SONG ENDS]


>> RACHEL: It’s Senses Week, and tonight we’ve got more true or false for you. I'll say something, and you give us a thumbs up if it’s true…


[DING]


>> RACHEL: -or a thumbs down if it’s false.


[BUZZER]


>> RACHEL: Here’s your first one: 


Birds…


[SQUAWK]


>> RACHEL: -can see colors that humans can’t see.


>> RACHEL: So is that true, or false? Can birds see colors humans can’t see?


[MUSIC BEGINS]


>> RACHEL: Find out after you switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>> RACHEL: -and brush the molars in the back too.


The answer is… TRUE! 


[DING]


>> RACHEL: Birds can see some colors that humans can’t see. 


[BIRDS CHIRPING]


>> RACHEL: Birds can see a lot more colors actually. Colors that we can’t even imagine! And because of that, birds can see berries much more clearly than humans and from much farther than we could ever see them. 


[BIRD SQUAWK]


>> RACHEL: Seeing more colors helps birds find food.


>> RACHEL: Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>> RACHEL: -but don’t brush too hard.


[MUSIC ENDS]


>> RACHEL: Here’s your next true or false. 


Elephants use vibrations to find friends.


So is that true or false? Can elephants use vibrations to find friends?


The answer is…True!


[DING] 

[MUSIC BEGINS]


>> RACHEL: Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>> RACHEL: -and brush your front teeth too. 


Elephants can trumpet…


[ELEPHANT TRUMPET] 


>> RACHEL: -or rumble…


[ELEPHANT RUMBLE]


>> RACHEL: -to send messages to each other. But their feet and trunks can also pick up the vibrations of trumpets or rumbles from as far as 10 miles away. And they can tell if the trumpeter or rumbler is a friend - like another elephant…


[ELEPHANT TRUMPET]


>> RACHEL:  -or from a stranger - like a lion! 


[LION ROAR]

[MUSIC ENDS]
