One of the activities from her unit that we did was to taste astronaut ice cream, then we tried a little regular vanilla ice cream for a comparison. We made this class graph:

OK, I am sorry. I have looked and looked for someone who hasn't gotten this award and am still looking. I apologize for not following through. (I am currently working on a lesson I am teaching at our service center and that is taking up ALL my extra time.) This will have to be a "work in progress."
