There are SO many sounds inside the body, but today we've got some special ones for you to guess!

Where to Listen



>> RACHEL: Good morning, 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’re going to play 


>> RACHEL: I’m going to play a sound your body makes, and you have to try and guess what it is! 


>> RACHEL: Do you know what sound this is? Shout it out!



>> GROUP: A stomach rumble! 

>> RACHEL: A stomach rumble! 

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


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

When your stomach rumbles, or your tummy growls, it often means it’s time for food. 

That sound comes from a part of our body called the INTESTINES.

The intestines are the part of the digestive system, which is the system that turns the food we eat into energy … and then poop! 

That rumbling or growling sound is AIR moving around your intestines.


Switch your brushing to bottom of your mouth…


>> RACHEL: -and brush your front teeth too. 

Ready for your next sound? 


>> RACHEL: Hmmm, let’s hear that again.


>> RACHEL: What sound is that? 

>> GROUP: Chewing! 

>> RACHEL: That’s right, it’s chewing! 

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


>> RACHEL: -and brush your tongue too.

Chewing is when we use our mouths to break up the food we eat, before we swallow. When we take a bite of something…


>> RACHEL: -we have to break it up into small pieces so we can swallow it. We break up the food with our teeth! That means our mouth, and our teeth, are both a part of our digestive system, even though they’re NOT in our tummies!



>> RACHEL: That’s it for Chompers this morning, but come back tonight for more What’s that Sound! 

And don’t forget to-

>> KIDS: 3-2-1 Spit!
