>> Rachel: Rise and shine Chompions, it's time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show.
Start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side, and brush the inside, outside and chewing side of each tooth
>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!
>> Rachel: It’s Oceans Week, and today we’re playing true or false. I'll say something and you have to decide if it’s true (SFX) or false (SFX). Here’s your first one:
Fish go to school to learn how to swim.
So is that true or false? Do fish go to school to learn to swim?
Thumbs if it’s true. Thumbs up if it’s false.
Find out after you switch to the other side of the top of your mouth, and keep moving your brush!
The answer is… False! (SFX) Fish don’t GO to school. But here’s a funny thing: People call a big group of fishing swimming together a school.
Here’s your next true or false:
There's a fish that can swim as fast as a cheetah can run (SFX PEW)
So is that true or false? IS there a fish that can SWIM as fast as cheetahs can run??
Find out after you switch to the bottom of your mouth and brush all the way to the back.
The answer is ….False! No fish can swim as fast as a cheetah can run.
Cheetahs are the fastest animals on land, and can run up to 75 miles per hour, like a car going on the highway. (SFX race car) But in the water, the Sailfish is the fastest, and can swim nearly 70 miles per hour! Good thing sailfish can't run, or cheetahs would have to look out!
Switch your brushing to the other side of the bottom of your mouth and brush your front teeth too.
Here’s one last true or false before you go:
There's a fish that can live on land. So is that true or false? Is there a fish that can live on land?
The answer is… true! (SFX) There are a few types of fish that are able to survive outside of the water. Fish like the Rockskipper fish, and the Eel catfish can live for hours outside of the water! But they can’t hang out on land forever. They eventually have to return to the water (SFX SPLASH)
That's it for Chompers today, but come back tonight to learn more about sea creatures! Until then,
>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!
