We're listening to things that use code on this morning's What's That Sound! 

Where to Listen


>> Chomperbot: Good morning Chompions, and welcome to another day. It’s time for Chompers, your twice daily tooth brushing podcast. 

Start brushing on one side of the top of your mouth, and make tiny circles around each tooth.

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!! 

>> Chomperbot: It’s Coding Week on Chompers, and today we have a robotic round of-

(What’s That Sound Theme)

>> Chomperbot: I’m going to play the sound of something that uses code, and you have to guess what it is! Ready for your first one? 

(Shower Sounds)

>> Chomperbot: Huh, let’s hear that one again:

(Shower Sounds) 

>> Chomperbot: So, what is this thing that uses Code? What’s that sound? 

>> Group: A Hot Shower! 

>> Chomperbot: A Hot Shower! 

Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth, and brush your front teeth too. 

>> Chomperbot: You can thank CODE if you take a hot shower or a warm bath in the morning. Many houses have something called a WATER HEATER, which warms up the water you use, [shower/sigh] but only when you ask it too. This water heater has a computer in it! That computer uses CODE to know if you’re asking for the hot water or cold water. CODE IS EVERYWHERE! Even in your pipes. 

Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth, and make sure you reach the molars in the way back. 

>> Chomperbot: Ready for your next sound? 

(Crispy celery bite)

>> Chomperbot: Hmmm, let’s hear that again…

(Crispy celery bite) 

>> Chomperbot: So … what’s that sound?

>> GROUP: Vegetables! 


>> KID: Huh?

>> Chomperbot: I’ll explain what code has to do with vegetables after you switch your brushing to the other side of the bottom of your mouth, and give your tongue a brush too. 

Some of our fruits and vegetables are grown in something called a GREENHOUSE! This is a HUGE, very special room that is made just for growing plants! Farmers use computers -- and those computers use CODE -- to make sure greenhouses are always the perfect temperature to grow cucumbers, or tomatoes, or spinach or … whatever! So you can thank CODE for that awesome salad too! (SFX YUM) (SFX CRUNCH) 

You’re done for today though. Make sure to-

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!!
