A science teacher at Longwood High School took the photo of the four zoology students and then included the image in a slideshow that was shown to the class right before holiday recess, according to reports. The photograph shows the teenagers lined up one behind another with their left arms outstretched and resting upon the heads of the classmate in front of them.
