5th Grade Lunch Bunch Wrap Up

Have you ever done a simultaneous supertaster test with 35 fifth graders?  I have and it was awesome!

35 fifth graders stuck with me from October through December, meeting during lunch in the library twice a week to listen to the audiobook of Liar & Spy by Rebecca Stead, a 2014-2015 Texas Bluebonnet Award nominee.  #txbluebonnetaward I really admire their persistence and willingness to stick to a goal and finish strong.  We loved the plot twists at the end.

On the last day, we did a taste test similar to the one in the book, but more an opposite, because instead of just a few people not tasting anything, most of us tasted nothing.  In the book, they tasted for PROP.  We tasted for the supertaster gene.  Check out these students right before they taste it!

It was a blast, guys.  Thanks so much for eating lunch with me in the library the past few months!
