Welcome to the O.R.E.O. Project 2011!
(Our Really Exciting Online Project)

Classrooms are invited to participate. Each classroom will need to have each student stack oreo® cookies as high as he or she can and then average all their individual results to achieve a final Class result.

Project Dates:
September 19 to October 7, 2011

This project is now over.

You will measure the COUNT of cookies used to stack --
height of stack.

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

(classrooms need to use the REGULAR oreo cookie --
not double stuf or triple double for their average.
IF you wish to use the different kinds as a class comparison -- that is fine.)

Students will observe how many oreos
they are able to stack before the oreos
® tumble.

Students are encouraged to speculate
how many oreos® they think they will be able to stack and then compare actual results.

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
will record the highest amount they were able
to stack before tumbling.

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 from their classroom will be averaged and posted!

Once the entire class has stacked their oreos®, they will average all their results to turn in ONE class amount.
