Willmar Middle School students studying science in cramped, outdated classrooms
Bob the fish wasn't doing so well. He was cold, because the beaker that served as his fish bowl was sitting in a pan full of snow. His breathing had slowed, and he didn't move around as much. If a goldfish can seem unhappy, he did. Things got better when the snow was replaced by warm water, and his little world began to warm up.
The quartet of seventh-graders who had named him Bob watched the fish's reaction and counted his respirations as he was ch-illed and warmed up.
