Cheese HeadsSports fans in Wisconsin sometimes wear cheese on their head. Well, not real cheese! They wear a foam hat that looks like cheese. This is the way they show their spirit at sports events. Wisconsin is known for making great cheese. It is a symbol for their state! The man who had the idea for the cheese hat is named Ralph Bruno. He made the first cheese hat in 1987. That is more than 20 years ago! Cheese hats are sold in all 50 states and more than 30 countries. This week, Wisconsin is giving Mr. Bruno a special award for coming up with such a neat idea for a hat.
Traveling TurtlesScientists made a new discovery about sea turtles. They put a special device on baby sea turtles to see where they swam while they were young. Scientists were very surprised at what they learned. Young turtles traveled from Costa Rica all the way to Bermuda. This is a trip of more than 10,000 miles. That is a very long way for a little turtle! Scientists found that Bermuda is where many turtles like to live while they are growing up. When they are all grown up they will be about the size of a bathtub. Then they travel to a new, adult habitat.
Bikes as ArtMany people love to ride bicycles. Not only are bicycles a fun activity on a sunny day, but they are also a great way to get where you need to go. Many people even ride their bikes to work instead of driving a car. This saves them money on gas. More cities are adding bike lanes to many of the roads. All of this biking means the bike business is booming. People are buying more bikes than ever! This week was the North American Handmade Bicycle Show. More than 8,000 people were at the show in Sacramento, California. Bikes at this show were made completely by hand—not in a big factory. They are true works of art!
