Oreo Mitosis Lab
Mrs. Amber Stephens' life science classes recently completed a fun oreo mitosis lab. Students used oreos and frosting to create models of mitosis (cell division). Each group of three students were given six oreos to illustrate the six phases of mitosis. In addition, students summarized the major events taking place during each phase and detailed the role each cell organelle plays in the process. The best part is that the lab clean-up was a breeze. Once their models were checked, the students were allowed to eat everything!

Turner Middle names second winners.
Each nine weeks, ten outstanding students at Turner County Middle School are selected to receive the “Rebel Pride” award. Students are chosen based on qualities such as character, leadership, and citizenship. Rebel Pride students work hard, complete their assignments on time, and demonstrate effort toward mastery of all subjects. These students model exemplary behavior both inside and outside the classroom, are well mannered, and are respectful to peers and teachers alike.
