>> RACHEL: It’s Senses Week, and today we’ve got some SENS-ational riddles for you. 


Here’s your first one: 


When you reach out with your finger 

You need me to recognize

That your eye is not your nose, and  

That your toes are not your thighs


What is this sense? Shout it out


[MUSIC BEGINS]


>> GROUP:  BODY AWARENESS!


>> RACHEL: The sense of body awareness. Wait a minute … that’s a new sense! 


I’ll tell you more after switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>> RACHEL: -and brush your molars in the back too.


BODY AWARENESS isn’t one of the FIVE BASIC senses that we talk about all the time.  


But your sense of Body awareness is what let’s you know where your body parts are. Like, if you closed your eyes right now, and reached down to touch your leg, you would find it. That’s because of body awareness. This is a very useful sense if you want to walk without tripping over your feet, or stick your toothbrush in your mouth without poking your nose!


>> MAN: OUCH!

  

[SWITCH BELL]


>> RACHEL: Switch to the bottom of your mouth, and brush your front teeth too.


[MUSIC ENDS]


>> RACHEL: Here’s your next riddle: 


Slide to the left, slide to the right

Now it's time to get funky

Now to the right, now to the left

Don’t worry I’ll keep you steady!


What’s this riddle about? Shout it out!
