A BMS sixth-grader tosses a snowsnake into a track of snow at Bemidji Middle School. A physical education class, taught by Dan Ninham, also focused on snowshoeing and broomball as part of their winter games unit. For snowsnake, students took turns tossing the pole, called a snowsnake, down a track to see how far they could make it go.
