The rest of Scout’s school year proceeds much like her first day. She can’t help but think she’s missing something since Atticus was educated at home, not with the Dewey Decimal System and he’s been elected to the state legislature unopposed for years. Scout gets out of school 30 minutes before Jem so she races past the Radley Place. One afternoon, something catches her eye and she returns to one of the big oak trees in the Radley yard. In a knothole, she finds two pieces of chewing gum in tinfoil, which, after checking to make sure they’re not poisonous, she shoves in her mouth.Jem is aghast when he finds her and makes Scout gargle.
hope this helps if not please let me now
