Gimbap is a traditional Korean dish popular as light meal, take-out and for picnics. It is similar to Japanese Norimaki, but with a distinctive sesame flavour.
Towa's mother showed us how to prepare the ingredients and the technique to roll them. The children and parents then eagerly rolled seaweed, sesame flavoured rice, sausages, pickles, spinach, egg, and carrots into Ginbaps.
At the end of our unit on the life cycle of living things, the Preschool class visited the Itami Insectarium. The children had an opportunity to see many different insects at different stages of their life cycles.
