It's Feelings Week on Chompers. And we're starting off with a curious quiz!

Where to Listen


>> RACHEL: Good morning, it's time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show. 

Start brushing on the top of your mouth, and brush the inside, outside, and chewing side of each tooth.

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!

>> RACHEL: It’s Feelings WEEK. (SFX yay, awww, cool, huh) Thanks for sharing all these feelings. We’re starting off with a QUIZ!


Our question is: How many feelings can humans have?

Is it


>> Zac: - Yeah, 5 is the answer.


>> Zac: - Oh, could be 1000, actually.



>> Zac: - Now that I think about … could be that too .. 

>> RACHEL: OK, Zac. Well, while you make up your mind... Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth, and brush the molars in the way back.

All right. To figure it out, let’s learn a little bit more about feelings.

Feelings can travel through your body! Like feeling excited can make you feel like your body is super light (SFX flying high) or being sad might feel like carrying something heavy around (SFX dragging bag). Some feelings can go head-to-toe!  Being scared can give you goosebumps (SFX cold teeth) or make your heart beat really fast. (SFX heartbeats) 

Switch to the bottom of your mouth and spit, if you have to.

Feelings happen because of what you see, hear, remember, and do. It’s hard to explain what a feeling is, but you definitely know when you're having one. Like seeing a cat (SFX meow) might make you feel warm and fuzzy. Hearing your grown-up laugh at your joke (SFX laugh) might make you feel proud. And remembering that moment where you found hair in your soup (SFX splat) might make you feel grossed out. (SFX yuk) 

Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth and brush your front teeth, too.

All right, now that we know a little more about feelings - it’s time to make a guess. 

How many feelings can humans have?

Is it





>> Zac: I’m just not sure!!

>> RACHEL: Zac, I can tell you still FEEL hesitant about this one.. So when we come back tonight, we’ll give you the answer! Until then, rinse before you 

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!
