It's HISTORY Week, so get ready to head back in time because we’re hopping into our imaginary time machine!

Where to Listen



>> Rachel: Good morning! 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!!

>> Rachel: It’s HISTORY Week on Chompers! Get ready to-

>> Zac: What’s history? 

>> Rachel: Oh hey Zac! History is the past! The past is what happened before today. So that includes .. yesterday and ... thousands and millions of years ago. 

>> Zac: Got it. The past already happened.

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


>> Rachel: -and keep brushing. 

And so, when you explore or learn about history, you’re learning about people from the past!

>> Zac: Like my great great grandmother

>> Rachel: And you also look at PLACES from the past.

>> Zac: Like my great great grandmother’s house!

>> Rachel: And you can also look at objects from the past. 

>> Zac: Ah, like my great great grandmother’s glasses!

>> Rachel: And finally, when you study history, you look at events from the past. 

>> Zac: So like when my great great grandmother first got her glasses!

>> Rachel: Sort of … I’ll explain after you switch to the bottom of your mouth…


>> Rachel: -and brush the molars in the way back.

History is made up of stories -- like, the time your great great grandmother getting her glasses.  But those little stories are part of BIG stories -- So your great great grandma’s story of getting her glasses is actually part of the bigger story from history -- when glasses were invented and people could finally see better!

History is the stories of groups of people, of a city, a country, a continent, of the world!  

Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth…


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

Going back and learning about the stories from history is really fun - it’s sort of like having a time machine! So this week, for History Week, we’re hopping into our imaginary time machine       and going to different places, traveling to different times, meeting different people, and discovering different objects from history! Starting tonight!



>> Rachel: Find out where in history we landed tonight, until then…

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!
