Welcome to the O.R.E.O. Project!
(Our Really Exciting Online Project)

This year's project will invite classrooms to have each student stack oreo® cookies as high as he or she can and then average each student's highest result to achieve a final Class result.

Registration is now closed
for this project!

Students will COUNT the number of cookies used to stack --
height of stack.
As they stack, they should either count or tally!

Each participating class will need at least 1 bag of Nabisco's Oreo® Chocolate and Creme Sandwich Cookies.

Students will estimate how many oreos they think they will be able to stack before the oreos® tumble.


Students are NOT to use anything to stablize the cookie and they are NOT able to adjust cookies as they stack. (i.e....once they have placed the cookie and their hand has left the cookie, they may NOT adjust that cookie again.)

Each student will have TWO attempts to stack oreos® and then will record the highest amount they were able to stack before the cookies tumbled.

Teachers will need to explain to their students that this is a project with schools all over the world and also explain what information this project is attempting to collect. They also need to discuss that at the end of the project, all results will be averaged!

Once the entire class has stacked their oreos®, they will average all the highest results of each student to
then submit ONE class amount.

A tumble is when 1 or more cookies fall off the stack!!

(ie: if you put a cookie on top and it tumbles off after you move your hand -- you are done stacking.
If you put a cookie on top, and more than 1 cookie tumbles off after you move you hand - you are done stacking!)

Students are also invited to participate in the
Using ONLY Oreos® and the creme filling, students can unique sculptures (such as trains, houses, etc).
