Don't forget to check out the resource
page for worksheets, etc.
|DOUBLE STUFF CHALLENGE!
Buy 1 bag of regular stuf oreo cookies and 1 bag of double stuf.
Have 2 containers (or 2 plates, cookie sheets, waxed paper, etc) -- measure the weight of this before adding "stuf"
Scrape out all the stuf from the regular cookie bag and place in a container.
Scrape out all the stuf from the double cookie bag and place in a container.
Record your results & discuss if double stuf IS double stuf.
Directions: 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.
|CREATE A GRAPH
Visit http://nces.ed.gov/nceskids/createagraph/ and have your students create a graph to represent either individual students, groups of students, or visit the RESULT page and compare YOUR results with other classrooms.
Visit the Resource page for a copy of the tiny oreo I use w/ excel to create a stacked looking graph. (or use excel, google spreadsheets, etc)
Create moon phases by using Oreo® Cookies.

|COUNT THE COST
Visit 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 once a week, through the project, to see how the amounts will fluctuate!)
OLDER STUDENTS -- create a graph to display your data!!
|IF YOU GIVE A KID A COOKIE......
Poll your students or create a google form (asking your students how they eat a oreo cookie) and copy those responses to wordle, tagxedo, tagul, etc to create a picture cloud of their answers. (read more here about using Wordle & more)
Connect (via our participant listing) with another classroom and try to guess locations -- or better yet.....share your stacking moments, have a friendly stacking competition, etc.
Buy a bag of regular oreo cookies & mini. Have students choose items in the classroom to measure length using the regular cookie first - then the mini.
For older students - compare diameter & use the information to expand math opportunities.
|WONDER IF I GAVE .....
Watch the video on youtube and create your own video, poem, song, play, skit, story, etc!!
