Scattered skittles

Scattered skittles

Scattered skittles By Amalia Duron-Martin  The 7th grade teachers put a skittle lab together for their students to help them better understand their unit on plants during December 2015. Skittles are a go to snack, so why are students using them in science labs?  Ms. King and Mr. Lyne created this lab to build molecules involved in the chemical reactions for photosynthesis and cellular respiration. This lab helps the students visually see and manipulate the candies, which represented atoms.

Many students and teachers at Bowling Green Junior High School celebrate this holiday in different ways and have different traditions. “My family went to my grandparent’s house, and we had Easter lunch and had an egg hunt with all of the kids in our family,” said Aiden Gantt, a sixth grader at BGJHS. For many, this holiday is represented by the Easter bunny, Easter egg hunts, and family, but this day also celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. “Jesus wanted to die on the cross for us to forgive us for all of our sins,” said Jacob Deglow, an eighth grader at BGJHS. On Easter, most students have the tradition of eating a big meal with their family. Whether it is Easter Lunch or Easter Dinner, it is...
