>> Rachel: Good morning! It’s time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show.
It’s transportation week and today we’ve got some riddles for you!
But first – got your toothbrush ready? Start on the top of your mouth on one side, and make sure to brush the outside of your teeth and the inside.
>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1, brush!
>> Rachel: Ok, here comes your first riddle:
I fly without a pilot
And can be big or small
Keep your hands on the remote control
Or from the sky I will fall
What am I?
Are you ready to take a guess? Shout it out in 3, 2, 1:
>> KIDS: A Drone!
>> Rachel: A drone!
Drones are like an airplane that can fly without someone flying it from the inside.
Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth. And make sure to brush the teeth all the way to the back, too!
Drones can be as big as regular airplanes, or small like toy cars. Drones can be used to take pictures from the sky, or even learn more about the weather! (SFX THUNDER)
Ready for your next riddle? (SFX YEAH!)
My supersonic speed
Makes me the fastest flyer
And all the lift under my wings
Is what makes me fly higher
What am I?
Ok, let’s shout out that answer in 3 - 2 - 1.
>> KIDS: A Jet Plane!
>> Rachel: A Jet Plane!
Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth and and make sure not to brush too fast.
Jet planes are a type of airplane -- and they’re SUPER fast. (SFX ZOOM)
Ready for another riddle? (SFX YAY!)
Taking folks to work and school
My wheels go round and round
My seats are like an airplane’s
But I travel on the ground
What am I? Shout it out in 3, 2, 1:
>> KIDS: A bus!
>> Rachel: A bus!
Ok, switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth and make those brushing circles over each and every tooth.
School busses in the United States are usually yellow. (SFX HONK HONK) And in London, they have RED busses -- with TWO LEVELS! (SFX OH HELLO!)
You are almost done with your brushing for today, but before you go, I’ve got one last riddle for you.
I travel on a rocket
To explore outer space
My passengers are astronauts
In orbit – that’s their place
What am I?
Come back to chompers tonight to find out the answer. You’re all done … all you have to do now is
>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!
