[THEME SONG BEGINS]
>> RACHEL: Good evening and welcome to Chompers! Your morning and night tooth brushing 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 Body Systems week, and today we have more riddles to tickle your brain!
>> RACHEL: I’m on top of your skeleton
But just below your skin
You use me when you walk
And when you run, skip, hike or swim
What am I?
>> GROUP: Muscles!
>> RACHEL: Muscles!
Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth…
>> RACHEL: and brush your front teeth too.
Your muscles are part of your muscular system, which helps you move! Muscles are like a rubber band that can push and pull your bones to move your body.
>> RACHEL: Let’s say I wanted to wave to my friend again!
>> WOMAN: Oh, hello!
>> RACHEL: When my brain decides to wave, the muscles in my arm will tighten up…
[RUBBER BAND SOUND]
>> RACHEL: -helping me raise my arm…
>> RACHEL: and then wave my hand.
>> RACHEL: And the muscles in my face will turn my mouth into a smile!
>> RACHEL: Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth…
>> RACHEL: -and don’t forget the molars in the way back.
Ready for your next riddle?
Let’s do this to stay healthy
Jump around and go out to play
If you’re six years old or older
Do it at least one hour a day!
What is this?
>> GROUP: Physical Activity!
>> RACHEL: Physical activity.
Switch your brushing to the other side of the bottom of your mouth…
>> RACHEL: -And keep on brushing.
Physical Activity is a fancy way of saying getting up on your feet and doing something! It’s what we call moving around, and it’s an important part of staying healthy. When you exercise, or move around, you give your heart a workout too. Your heart is an important part of your CARDIOVASCULAR system, which helps move blood around your body!
