[THEME SONG BEGINS]


>> RACHEL: Good morning! It’s time for Chompers, your twice daily toothbrushing show. 


It’s Science week, and today we’ve got some I SPIES for you. So listen close, and make your best guess ... or HYPOTHESIS 


But first: 


Start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side, and brush the molars in the way back too. 


>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!


[THEME SONG ENDS]


>> RACHEL: Today our I SPIES take us to a SCIENTIST’S LABORATORY.


So Here’s your first one: 


Here in the lab I see steam rising from a bubbling liquid…


[BUBBLING SOUNDS] 


>> RACHEL: The liquid is in a glass container that looks like a normal cup … but then I see that glass has little marks on the side, to tell you how much liquid is inside of it. 


What do I Spy? What’s your hypothesis? 


>> GROUP: A Beaker!


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


[SWITCH BELL]


>> RACHEL: -and make little circles with your brush around each tooth. 


That glass cup is called a Beaker. Beakers are the glass containers that scientists use when studying or doing experiments.

 

Beakers have have markings on the side so you can measure how much liquid is in them.


[POURING SOUNDS]


>> RACHEL: Scientists need to be able to measure the ingredients for their experiment, and a beaker helps them do that!


Switch to the bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>> RACHEL: -and give your tongue a brush too.


Here’s your next I Spy: 


Here in the scientist’s laboratory, I see the scientist is doing an experiment, and heating up one of the liquids in the beaker. Its sitting on what looks like a little stove that is making a flame, heating the beaker from underneath. 


What is it I Spy? What’s your hypothesis? 


>> GROUP: A Bunsen Burner!


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


[SWITCH BELL]


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


The little stove is called A Bunsen Burner.

Bunsen Burners are used in science labs to create a controlled small fire. 


[GAS TURNS ON]


A fire needs fuel -- like gas -- to burn … so a Bunsen burner has a little knob that controls how much gas is given to the fire.

[THEME SONG BEGINS]


>> RACHEL: That’s it for Chompers today, but come back tonight for more science I Spies. Until then…


>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!
