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 all the way to the molars in the back. 

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush! 

>> RACHEL: It’s Science Week, and today we’re playing TRUE or FALSE! I’ll say something, and if you think it’s true…


>> RACHEL: -give it a thumbs up if you think it’s false…


>> RACHEL: -thumbs down. 

Here’s your first one: 

BOTANY is the study of boats, 

So what do you think? Is BOTANY the study of BOATS?  




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


>> RACHEL: -but don't brush too hard

Botany is the study of PLANTS. There are about 400 THOUSAND types of plants on planet earth, and those are just the ones we know about! Botanists study these plants, and sometimes even discover all new plants! 

Botany is an important science, because plants are often where we get new medicines from, to help cure diseases and make people feel better. 

Switch to the bottom of your mouth…

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

Here’s your next True or False: 

Scientists believe that some Dinosaurs had feathers like birds…


>> RACHEL: So, is this true or false? Thumbs up or thumbs down? 

Ready? ITS TRUE!


>> RACHEL: Some Scientists who study dinosaurs think that some dinosaurs probably looked like Giant birds.


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


>> RACHEL: -and keep brushing!

The scientists who study dinos are called PALEONTOLOGISTS. They study ancient creatures including dinosaurs. Paleontologists have discovered the bones of a small dinosaur that kind of looked like a mini t-rex, except this little guy was covered in feathers!



>> RACHEL: That's it for Chompers today, but come back tonight for more True or false. Until then…

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!
