is now closed
for this project!
Students will COUNT the number of cookies used
to stack --
NOT height of stack.
As they stack, they should either count or tally!
participating class will need at least 1 bag of Nabisco's Oreo®
Chocolate and Creme Sandwich Cookies.
will estimate how many oreos they think they will be able to stack
before the oreos®
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.)
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
Once the entire class has stacked their oreos®, they will
average all the highest results of each student
then submit ONE class amount.
IS A TUMBLE:
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!)
are also invited to participate in the
Oreo® SCULPTURE PROJECT.
