On Wednesday and Thursday last week in Mr. Chris Greco’s advanced biology classes, the juniors and seniors performed cell skits on stage in the auditorium.
The students were assigned parts of a cell and researched information about them. Then, in small groups, they chose a theme and incorporated their information into the skit. After days of practice and planning, they performed their skits on stage while they were recorded. Some various themes of the skits were a wrestling match, a dating show, a beauty pageant, a talent show, and a school theme. Junior Wyatt Fleischer, whose cell part was the mitochondria said, “I dressed up like a female; it was quite terrific.” Bradley Amy and Andrew Flynn were contestants in the beauty pageant and dressed up as females as well. At the end of their humorous skit, it was revealed that Flynn had won the beauty pageant.
Although the skits had an academic benefit, they were also very entertaining. Junior Bradley Amy commented, “This was one of the most fun assignments that we’ve had this year, and it was really funny to see everyone dress up.”
