Tonight we are spying more awesome inventions for you to guess.

Where to Listen


>> Rachel: Hey there! It’s time for more Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show. 

Start 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 Inventors Week, and tonight we’re spying more inventions! I’ll describe what I spy, and you guess what it is! 

Here’s your first one: 

I see a device that you can use to surf the internet, watch movies, and write emails. (SFX) I watch movies on the monitor , I type emails on the keyboard (SFX TYPING) and I click through web pages with a mouse (SFX CLICK CLICK).

Find out after you switch to the other side of the top of your mouth, and but dont brush to hard.

What do I spy? 


>> Rachel: We use computers all the time, sometimes without realizing we’re using one! Calculators, radios, traffic lights and cell phones all use computers to work. Alan Turing came up with the ideas that helped create the first computer, a long time ago -- back when your grandparents were kids! (SFX WOOOOOW)  

Switch to the bottom of your mouth, and give your tongue a brush too.

Here’s your next I Spy: 

I see a light coming from the ceiling. It shines brightly out of a glass object with little wires in it (SFX BUZZING) -- oh look! There’s a moth buzzing around this object -- looks like the moth loves the light!

What is this device? What do I spy? 



>> Rachel: Yeah a light bulb! Who invented the lightbulb?

Find out after you switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth and brush the molars in the back too. 

Thomas Alva Edison is famous for inventing the lightbulb, but that’s just one of the hundreds of things he invented. Edison even helped create the system to send electricity to houses. (SFX ELECTRICITY). His electricity company, Consolidated Edison, is still around today, providing electricity to millions of Americans 

That's it for Chompers tonight, but come back tomorrow for more inventors. Until then, 

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit.
