Here's your first one:


This sport is like soccer

You get a ball into a net

But since it happens in a pool

You have to get wet


[SPLASH]


What sport is this?


>>GROUP: WATER POLO


>>RACHEL: WATER POLO!


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


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: -and brush the molars in the way back.


Water polo is a team sport played in a pool, where each team tries to throw the ball into a goal. In water polo, players can’t touch the bottom of the pool, so they have to TREAD WATER. Treading water is a way of making yourself float -- you kick your legs under water. It’s sort of like swimming in place!


Water polo players have to swim or tread water for the whole game. That’s why they have such strong legs!


[SPLASH]


Switch to the bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: -and give your tongue a brush too!


Here’s another riddle for you:


This sport happens in a car

On a track they race

Drivers going round and round

Trying to come in first place


What sport is this? Shout it out!


>>GROUP: NASCAR RACING!


>>RACHEL: NASCAR RACING!


>>RACHEL: People who drive in NASCAR races drive special cars that are made to go super fast!


[VROOM!]


>>RACHEL: Over 200 miles an hour!


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


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: -but don’t brush too hard.


NASCAR Drivers train to safely drive around a race track, making tight turns and avoiding the other cars for a long time! NASCAR races can go for over 3 hours! Each car has a team of one driver, and 5 people, called the pit crew, who are there to take care of the car...
