>> RACHEL: Welcome back, 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!


[THEME SONG ENDS]


>> RACHEL: It’s Senses Week, and tonight we’ve got the answer to our quiz…


[QUIZ THEME]


>> RACHEL: -from this morning. 


Our question was: 


How many basic senses do humans have? 


Is it

3 senses? 

5 senses? 

OR

12 senses? 


Ready for the answer? 


>> KID: Yes!


>> RACHEL: Alright but first, switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth, 


[SWITCH BELL]


>> RACHEL: -and give me a drumroll by stomping your feet…


[DRUM ROLL]


>> RACHEL: The answer is….5 basic senses! 


>> KID: WOW!


[MUSIC BEGINS]


>> RACHEL: Most humans were born with 5 basic senses. Each of theses senses sends us a very special message from the outside world -  a touch, a taste, a smell, a sight or a sound…


[FLY BUZZING]


>> RACHEL: You hear that? A fly is buzzing around! You just used you sense of hearing. 


[FLY LANDS]

[MUSIC ENDS]


>> RACHEL: Switch to bottom of your mouth... 


[SWITCH BELL]


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


[MUSIC BEGINS]


>> RACHEL: These 5 basic senses are like 5 windows that connect us to the outside world. Each sense is like a special window because each sense gives us a different view of the world. 


Not everyone has those 5 windows or senses -- some people can’t hear.  Some people can’t see. Some people can’t smell. And some animals have MORE than 5 senses!  They have senses that humans DON’T have!


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


[SWITCH BELL]


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


Lots of animals can see, smell, hear, taste, and touch, and some animals have entirely different senses than humans. For example, fish...


[SPLASH]


>> RACHEL: -can feel electricity.


[UNDERWATER BUZZING]


>> RACHEL: They have the sense of electroreception. That means they have a different view of the world! An electric view!


[ZAP]

>> RACHEL: Come back tomorrow to make sense of all these senses, and make sure you rinse before you…


>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!
