Boogers

Why does your nose insist on making boogers? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby explore every nook and cranny of the common booger. You’ll learn all about the wonderful slime called mucus, and how it helps keep you healthy and breathing free. Plus, you’ll see what happens when mucus dries up in your nose to become boogers, and how specialized hairs in your nasal passages move them to the front and back of your nose. Tim will also tell you why shouldn’t pick your nose, unless you like nosebleeds and filthy fingers. So don’t be a snot--watch this very special BrainPOP production!
