two circles out of black construction paper, insert several blank
white circles between the black paper, and have your students make
a story book about their experience with this project.
Students write a story/paragraph about the best way to eat an Oreo®
your students write a paragraph on what flavor would they like to
add to the Oreo® Cookie and why.
Read the story "If You Gave A Mouse a Cookie." Have your
students rewrite the story with "If You Gave A Mouse An Oreo®."
ADDITIONAL IDEAS -- visit this
site for other ideas with the book!
a poem, a haiku, a limerick, or acrostic verse about Oreo® Cookies.
up a story about the day in the life of an Oreo® Cookie!!

|10. Create an ADJECTIVE BULLETIN BOARD and have your
students create word strips with words they think describe Oreo®
a digital or regular camera -- make a collage of your Oreo®
Day! Scan your pictures and print them out on T-Shirt transfer paper
as an added memory for your kids!!
the data collected from your Oreos® -- convert your data from
feet/inches to meters/centimeters.
First, set up a balance scale with hanger and plastic bags. Students
should be in groups of 3 - 4. Each student chooses an object in
the room for which other players will estimate the mass. The other
players will write down the number of Oreos® they think equals
the mass of the object chosen. They may pick up the object and examine
it to help estimate. The person whose object it is measures the
mass using Oreos® and the balance scale. The player with the
closest estimate picks the next object.
Before you begin the project -- have your student estimate how many
Oreos® will be in the bag. Then open the bag and count the contents
-- were you high, low, just right???
Calculate the mean, median, mode and range. (Website)
|5. Save the data from the Results Page into Excel and
create graphs of the project. If you don't have EXCEL, you can print
out the data and use an online graphing program called Create A Graph!
you have enough Oreos® for all the students in the class with
one bag?? Using addition or multiplication -- figure out how many
bags you would need to have 3 cookies per students (regular), 3
cookies per student (double stuf), or 4 cookies, or 5, etc etc etc!!
your own data, compare other school's data to your own. Are you
high or low?? Who has the exact same amount as you do??? Using the
downloaded data, teach your students how to sort data and create
graphs based on state participation.
COOKIE MATH website for a great class activity!!
your own Othello game. One student gets 1/2 of an Oreo® cookie
WITH the creme filling. The other student gets the 1/2 without the
creme filling. Use an OLD checkerboard (this will be a sticky game)
and let the game begin. (Game instructions: Click
this site in advance (Currency
convertor) to get current conversions. Write the actual cost
of your bag of Oreos® on your blackboard and then have you students
convert the price into different currencies. (Check back 1 time
a week through the project to see how the amounts will fluctuate!)
OLDER STUDENTS -- create a graph to display your data!!
the book "Cereal Math". Boost kids' math skills with these irresistible,
hands-on activities using cereal! Students will create a cereal
abacus, estimate how many raisins are in "two scoops", use Venn
diagrams to sort and classify cereal by attributes, collect and
graph data, explore patterns, and more!

an Oreo® float? Place it perpendicular to the water...what happens.
Place it parallel (flat) on the water...what happens? If it does
float, how long will it float before it becomes saturated and sink?
Record your results. Compare with other cookies to take it to the
far will an Oreo® roll from the top of an inclined plane set
at 3 inches, 4 inches, 5 inches..etc
an Oreo® more dense crushed up or whole? (Compare both regular
and double stuf.)
Create a Layers of the Earth using one side of Oreo® with cream
(after twising off one side and eating!) Put a dab of chocolate
syrup in the middle of the white and then a M&M on top of that
and you have the crust = Oreo® cookie you can see, the mantle
= white , the outer core = syrup, and the inner core (hard) = the
|7. What cookie
is the best for a picnic? OR which cookie "lasts longer"
in the sun? This could be done with or compared to a solor oven
made from a pizza box (cut a square out of the lid and cover that
opening with plastic wrap. line the inside of the pizza box with
black construction paper or foil).
How strong is an Oreo®? How much weight could it take to "crush"
fast does an Oreo® dissolve in water, soda, milk, etc.
