Transcript

[THEME SONG BEGINS]


>> RACHEL: Good morning, it's time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show. Start brushing on the top of your mouth, and brush the inside, outside and chewing side of each tooth.


>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!


[THEME SONG ENDS]


>> RACHEL: It’s SENSES WEEK.  We use our senses all the time … and this week we’re going to learn more about how they work and what we can use them for! 


So we’re starting with a quiz


[QUIZ THEME]


>> RACHEL: Today’s quiz question is: 


[FUTURISTIC MUSIC BEGINS]


>> RACHEL: How many basic senses do humans have? 


Is it

3 senses? 

5 senses? 

OR

12 senses? 


To figure it out, let’s learn a little more about senses. 


But first, switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


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

 

To hear the bear roaring in the forest... 


[BEAR ROAR]


>> RACHEL: we use our ears, which give us our sense of hearing. To see the stars in the sky... 


[STARS TWINKLE]


>> RACHEL: we use our eyes, which give us our sense of sight. To touch a furry cat...


[CAT MEOW]


>> RACHEL: we use our skin, which gives us our sense of touch. 


[MUSIC ENDS]


>> RACHEL: I’ll tell you about your other senses after you switch to the bottom of your mouth...


[SWITCH BELL]


>> RACHEL: -and make sure you’re making tiny circles with your brush.


[MUSIC BEGINS]


>> RACHEL: To smell a dog fart... 


>> KID: YUCK!


>> RACHEL: we use our nose, which gives us our sense of smell. And to taste chocolate...


[SLURP]


>> RACHEL: -we use our tongue, which gives us our sense of taste. 


Our senses work all the time. They send messages to our brain. 


[COMPUTER BEEPS]


>> RACHEL: And these messages are feelings, sensations, images and sounds that tell us what the outside world is like. 


>> RACHEL: Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


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


Without these senses we wouldn’t hear the bear roaring, see the stars in the sky, touch the cat’s fur,  smell the dog’ stinky fart, OR taste chocolate.


Now that we know a little more about senses, it’s time to make a guess. 


How many basic senses do humans have? 


Is it

3 senses? 

5 senses? 

OR

12 senses?
