Texas Rio Star Grapefruit

A few weeks ago the kids and I entered the Texas Rio Star Grapefruit Contest.  This worked perfectly because we have been learning about Texas symbols and the Rio Star Grapefruit is the State Fruit of Texas.

Today I got this in the mail.  I taped it to the door, so that the kids can see it first thing when they walk into the classroom tomorrow.  They have been asking me for weeks if they had won :).

I put the squeeters (or juicers) on their desk along with a bookmark and tattoo.  I will be sending home the directions on how to use the squeeter.  I hope you and your kids get to use them at home.  I know they will be super excited tomorrow.
