Wednesday. March 12.2014 Student Joe Drees smiles for the camera as he first gets the .empathy belly on. Pregnancy simulation By" Brittany Stegman Over the past few weeks, Lesley Taylor's Child De- velopment classes learned about prenatal develop- ment and her students had the opportunity to wear the empathy belly. The pur- pose of the empathy belly is to make the students who wear it feel like they are in their ninth month of pregnancy. Ms. Taylor, the Child Development teacher said, "The empathy belly is always an exciting activity for students to try. They instantly feel like they are nine months pregnant. Af- ter the three hour simula- tion, many are surprised at how taxing it is both physi- cally and emotionally." The students that chose to wear the belly only had to wear it for three class periods, but for most, that was more than enough time. Senior Shelby Keh- rer, a student who decided to wear the empathy belly, said, "Wearing the empathy belly Was a good experience. I think teens should be ex- posed to this more often because it teaches others how it truly feels to be nine months pregnant." There were two types of empathy bellies the stu- dents could wear, either a teen sized belly or an adult sized belly. Both weigh about 30 pounds and can cause backaches, fatigue, shallow breathing, in- creased blood pressure and body temperatures, and a frequency of urination. The empathy belly was a great experience for all of the peo- ple who decided to wear it.

Wesclin book awards By: Tyler Wyman The 2014 Abraham Lin- coln Book Award voting is around the corner with high school students at Wesclin having an opportunity to vote. The annual award is • given to the book with the most votes. To take part in this selection, the student's only requirement is that they read at least four of the 22 books on the nominee list. "The Abraham Lincoln book award list always has a great selection of books that suit a variety of read- ing interests. It is a great place to start if you're look- ing for a really good book." said teacher Mrs. Oster. Some of the popular books among them in- clude Divergent by Verom ica Roth, Room by Emma Donoghue, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, and I Hunt Killer by Barry Lyga. "Much like the rest of our English class, I read Divergent, and thoroughly enjoyed the futuristic dys- topia themes of the novel," said Sarah Hendren. The award is sponsored by the Illinois School Li- brary Media Association (ISLMA), with its purpose being to encourage students to read for personal satis- faction and become more familiar with adult books. The deadline for votes is March 14, and everyone is recommended to take a look at the nominee list for great book suggestions whether you are a student or not. Scholar Bowl season draws to a close By: Kristen Nelson Wesclin's Scholar Bowl team competed many times throughout the year at various events. Ten fresh- man comprise the fresh- man team, and thirteen sophomores, juniors and seniors comprise the var- sity team. Senior Bailey Kattenbraker said, "We're a strong team and work to- gether fairly well. I think that we'll be able to pull through in our regional and hopefully move on to sectionals." Scholar Bowl consists of five people on each team, with two teams opposing at a time. They are asked questions in many aca- demic subjects including mathematics, literature, world history, and geogra- phy. Those teams are then scored on how they answer questions correctly. "The freshman team this year has been phenomenal. They really have stepped up their game," said coach Jessica Pilgreen. The freshman team had a victorious season while the varsity team had a roller coaster ride of a year. The teams will compete at their regional in the next couple weeks and will hopefully advance to sectionals.
