Who spends all day digging up FOSSILS? Figure it out on tonight's RIDDLE-filled Chompers!

Where to Listen


>> Rachel: Welcome back! It’s time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show. 

Pick a side on the top of your mouth, and make tiny circles with your brush around each tooth.

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!

>> Rachel: It’s jobs week on Chompers, and tonight we’ve got the answer to our riddle from this morning: 

I spend all day with FOSSILS 

DIGGING to explore!

Maybe I’ll find a skeleton!

Or the teeth of a dinosaur!

What am I? 

>> GROUP: A paleontologist

>> Rachel: A paleontologist.

Paleontologists study the fossils, or bones, of dinosaurs and other creatures from the past.

Give you tongue a quick brush (SFX TONGUE BRUSH), and switch to the other side of the top of your mouth (SFX SWITCH)

Here’s another riddle: 


My work is done with scissors

You curls I trim and chop

I make people feel fabulous 

After they leave my shop

What Am I? 

>> KIDS: A Hairdresser

>> Rachel: To be a hairdresser or a barber, you have to take training courses at a school, and get a license.  What's a license? It's proof you know how to do the job.

Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth. (SFX) Pick a side, and make sure to brush the inside, outside and chewing side of each tooth. 

Here’s your next riddle: 

My job is taking care of home

I work both day and night

I manage the whole family

And make sure they’re alright

What am I? 

>> KIDS: A stay at home parent!

>> Rachel: Switch your brushing to the other side of the bottom of your mouth (SFX), and make sure to reach the molars in the way back of your mouth. 

Stay at home parents and caregivers are people who do a lot of work INSIDE the house. They might take care of kids who are too young to go to school, or take care of grandmas and grandpas who need help cooking and cleaning.

Whew! Talking about jobs is a lot of WORK. Great job brushing, and please come back tomorrow for more Chompers, and don’t forget to…

>> Kids: 3 2 1 spit!
