• The spider’s web

    so fragile but

    at the same

    time unbelievably strong

    Dew it is a home

    for the spider

    trapping the spiders food

    providing a safe place

    for the insect’s offspring

    In the pantry


    The one  you

    were probably saving

    Forgive me

    for it was

    sweet and salty

    And delicous

    • Nikki, this is a good poem. I go to a catholic school so I know about lent and how hard it is so give something up for that long. This is great, good work!

    • I definitely like the them you are going for here. I think you could afford a little more on the overall concept but the story and necessary development for it are definitely present. Good work.

  • Thank for writing this article, I have never heard of tissue chips before. This seems like a great alternative to animal testing and I hope to see companies use this method in the future.

  • This was a very interesting article and you brought up some great points! In my opinion these issues are not the same. When a women has an abortion the fetus is usually a ball of cells at that point and cannot feel pain. Some argue that it is not really a human yet.On the other hand there is no debating that you are actually killing a human in the…[Read more]

  • Thank you for writing about this very important issue. It is so important to bring awareness to the negative impact the meat industry is having on our planet. I have done some research on this topic in the past and I also learned that if everyone switched to a vegan diet world hunger could be eliminated more easily.

  • I think it is great how much you enjoy the word malaise. I really liked reading about how the word made you feel, and what the meaning of the word is. I will definitely be using this word in the future!

  • Thank you for writing this very informational piece! I did not realize how many negative effects there are to using your phone. I think it is important that people, especially our age, cut back on phone use for our health

    Shoo fly please do not bother me

    I do not want you buzzing around my food

    Can’t you tell you’re putting me in a bad mood

    Why can’t you go outside and fly by that tree

    You will gain so much more by being

    • Nikki,
      I really like the contrasting voices you picked here, they work super well. I love the beginning line too.

    This was a great article! I can relate to this stressors such as school have more than a couple times left me with headaches. I think it is important to focus on mental health because, like you said, it could effect you in the long run.

  • Thank you for writing about this topic! I have heard about the issue of bees dying before but never knew what caused it. This article was very informative!

  • I really enjoyed reading this article! It’s nice to hear that states are taking steps to cut down on greenhouse gases. It was interesting that you focused on what coastal states are doing, that was a really good point of topic that I hadn’t thought about that much before!

  • I really enjoyed reading this! It is great to hear that more and more people are surviving breast cancer. I found it interesting that the survival rate isn’t increasing because of preventative measures, it’s because of improvement in treatments. I hope we will see progress like this for other cancers as well!
