Native Japanese Loach and Guppies on the Scene!
In "Water and Land" reports about lefua echigonia (a native Japanese loach feared to be nearing extinction[see picture]) and the invasive guppy appear. Kids are discovering how many living creatures live in the confined space of one meter and starting activities to protect the rivers that these creatures live in.
What is Local Food?
Recipes for America's blueberry muffins, Okinawa's (Japan) "a-sa-jiru" (a pork based soup) and many others have been posted in "Home Town Kitchen." In "Food and Farm," Kyoto kids (see picture) report about "daifuku" (sweet, soft rice cakes). Groups are beginning to boast about their local foods.
How about reporting about your favorite local foods too?
