What does OLOGY mean? Take your guess on tonight's True or False.

Where to Listen




>> RACHEL: I’m sleepy. But there’s one more thing to do before bed. That’s right, it’s time for Chompers! Your morning and night toothbrushing show

Start brushing on the top of your mouth, and make little circles with your brush around each tooth

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!


>> RACHEL: It’s Science Week, and tonight we have more True or False for you! I'll say something, and you have to figure out if its true…


-or false…


>> RACHEL: Here's your first one:

A long time ago, people used to think that the EARTH was flat like a pancake, and that if you sailed to the edge, you would fall off!


>> RACHEL: So is this true, or false? Thumbs up for true, thumbs down for false

Ready for the answer? First, switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth, and give your tongue a brush too! 

The answer is: TRUE!


>> RACHEL: Long long ago, people thought that the earth was flat like a pancake! Now we know that the earth is round, like an orange. 

Here’s your next true or false: 

Physicists are people who can predict, or tell, exactly what will happen in the future.

So, is this true or false? 



>> RACHEL: Switch to the bottom of your mouth…


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

Physicists study the science of PHYSICS, and use math to figure out things like how to launch a rocket into space. 

>> ASTRONAUT: 3, 2, 1 ignition. 

>> RACHEL: But the word PHYSICS is kinda like the word PSYCHICS.  

PSYCHICS are people who SAY they can tell what will happen in the future, -- but they are definitely not scientists. 

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


>> RACHEL: -but don’t brush too hard. 

Here’s your last True/False:

When a word ends in the sound OLOGY, that means it’s the study of something...

So is this true or false? 



>> RACHEL: Ology means: the study of... like BI-OLOGY means the study of living things.


That’s it for Chompers tonight, and until then…

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit.
