[QUIZ THEME WITH SCHOOL BELL]


>>RACHEL: So, our quiz question for this week is: 


About how many students go to school every school year in the United States?


Is it:


16 million students 


56 million students 


Or 100 million students? 


Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL:  and brush your front teeth too. 


Before we try to answer, let’s learn a little more about what a “school year” means. 


When you think of a year, you might think of the time between one birthday and the next. But a school year isn't the same as a calendar year. 


The school year is the time that you’re in school.


[SCHOOL BELL]


>>RACHEL: Every school year we complete a different GRADE. Many students start in Kindergarten, and then complete 1st grade, then 2nd grade, then 3rd grade... all the way up to HIGH School! 


Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: -and give your tongue a brush too.


Every school has a school YEAR, but schools are different all over the world! 


Like, in France, some schools give students a two hour lunch break! (SFX WAIT WHAT?) And students in The Netherlands don’t start school until the day AFTER their 4th birthday! 


[HAPPY BIRTHDAY SONG]


>>RACHEL: And because everyone’s birthday comes at a different time, that means there’s always someone new joining the class! And that helps everyone learn how to make friends because there’s always someone new to meet!

 

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


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: -and don’t forget the molars all the way in the back.


Now that we know a little more about schools around the world, let's go back to the United States for our quiz question.  


 About how many students go to school every school year in the United States?


Is it:


16 million students 


56 million students 


Or 100 million students?

>>KIDS: 3-2-1 Spit!
