[THEME SONG BEGINS]


>>RACHEL: Welcome back, it’s time for Chompers, your twice daily toothbrushing show.

>>RACHEL: 3, 2, 1 brush!


[THEME SONG ENDS]


>>RACHEL: It’s sports week, and tonight we have more true or false to make your mind RACE! 


[RACING SOUNDS]


>>RACHEL: If you think it’s true, you’ll give it a thumbs up…


[DING]


>>RACHEL: False, thumbs down.


[BUZZER]


>>RACHEL: Here’s your first one: 


There is Olympic sport where athletes ride horses…


[HORSE SOUNDS]


>>RACHEL: So, is this true or false? If it’s true thumbs up, if its false, thumbs down.


Ready for the answer? First switch to the other side of the top of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: -and keep brushing.


Its True!


[DING]

[MUSIC STARTS]


>>RACHEL: Equestrian is the category in the Olympics for all sports having to do with horses. In the eventing competition, people jump their horses over barriers and turn around tight turns. And then there’s DRESSAGE. That’s like horse Dancing! 


Switch to the bottom of your mouth… 


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: -and brush those front teeth too


Here’s another true or false:


Curling is a sport where weightlifters see who can curl the heaviest weights


So is it true or false? Thumbs up or thumbs down? 


The answer is … FALSE!


[BUZZER]


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


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: -but don’t brush too hard


Curls ARE an exercise you can do with at the gym with heavy weights but CURLING isn’t a weightlifting sport. CURLING is a sport played on ice.  There’s something called a “STONE” that the players -- called curlers -- push down the ice into a big circle to score a point.
