(Newser) – A Norwegian school teacher put a new twist on show and tell by bringing a blood sample to class and letting students taste it, Gawker reports. The unnamed teacher brought a vial of her blood from a doctor's visit, and poured it on a plate for students to touch during "sharing time." The kids "asked if they could touch it and she allowed them," the school's director told Reuters. "Then they asked 'How do we get it off?' so she put her finger in her mouth and the children followed suit."

The kindergarten in the Norwegian town of Sola has sent the blood in for HIV/AIDS and other testing, knowing that up to 12 children may have tasted the teacher's blood. The teacher said sorry for the odd presentation, but the school fired her anyway.
