What do you call boiling hot water that sprays out of rocks? Find out on tonight's NATURE I SPY.

Where to Listen


>> Rachel: Hey, it’s time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show!

Start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side, and make little circles with your brush around each tooth. 

>> Kids: 3, 2, 1 Brush!

>> Rachel: It’s Nature Week, and tonight we’ve got some more I Spies for you to SEE with your EARS

Here’s your first one: 

It is hot. Really hot. But the heat isn’t coming from the sun, it’s coming from the ground! I see a pool of mud, bubbling , and feel rumbling under my feet ... and suddenly, a giant fountain of boiling hot water and steam shoots up from the ground.

What do I spy? Shout it out!

>> Kids: A Geyser!

>> Rachel: Switch to the other side of the top of your mouth (SFX), and brush your tongue too!

Geysers are kind of like nature’s tea kettles. Have you ever seen a tea kettle start boiling? As the water inside the kettle gets hot, it creates STEAM .. and that steam needs to get out! That’s basically how geysers work -- except instead of escaping through a whistle, the steam and boiling water in a geyser spurts out through cracks in the earth!

Switch to the bottom of your mouth, and make sure to get the molar teeth all the way in the back.

Here’s another Nature I Spy:

I see blue water, as far as the eye can see. Waves crash , and gulls squawk overhead. Suddenly, I see a group of animals coming toward me. They’re making this sound and they’re jumping out of the water, playing in the waves. 

What do I spy?

>> KIDS: Dolphins!

>> Rachel: Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth, and don’t forget your front teeth. 

Dolphins are one of nature’s SMARTEST animals. Dolphins can solve puzzles, work together to hunt, and scientists have even seen dolphins use tools -- like using shells to trap yummy fish for lunch. 

That’s it for Chompers tonight. All you have to do now is- 

>> Kids: 3, 2, 1 spit!
