>> Rachel: Alright, here comes your first joke.
>> KIDS: Who’s there?
>> Rachel: Submarine.
>> KIDS: Submarine who?
>> Rachel: Pardon? I couldn’t hear you, I was under water.
A SUBMARINE is a special type of boat that can go deep underwater. And the CREW of a submarine can live under the water for months at a time!
Many submarines are used by explorers and scientists to study the ocean and the animals that live far below the surface of the sea. (SFX BLOOP BLOOP)
Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth. Keep brushing in those little circles.
Without submarines we would haven’t been able to see the very deepest parts of the ocean and the interesting animals that live there -- like the yeti crab -- an all white crab with long fuzzy legs. (SFX XYLOPHONE)
Submarines have also been used to explore the ruins of ancient shipwrecks and buried treasure.
Switch to the bottom of your mouth, and make sure you’re brushing the front, back and chewing part of your teeth.
Have you heard of the Titanic? (SFX BELL) It’s a famous boat that sank a long time ago. When explorers wanted to look at the Titanic’s shipwreck, they used a SUBMARINE.
But if you’re underwater in a submarine, how can you see where you’re going?
Submarines have tools to help them see from underwater, like a PERISCOPE.
Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth, and make sure you’re not brushing too hard!
A PERISCOPE is a loooong tube that pokes up out of a submarine. (SFX BUBBLES POP) It lets the crew of the submarine see what’s going on on the surface of the water, or even in the air, without having to take the sub out from under the waves.
Ready for another joke?
>> KIDS: Who’s there?
>> Rachel: Annie
>> KIDS: Annie who?
>> Rachel: Annie body seen the keys to my submarine?
