was NO hypothesis this year.
Main Objective: Collect and share data!
followed these guidelines:
participating class used 1 bag of Nabisco's Oreo® Chocolate
and Creme Sandwich Cookie AND 1 box of Nabisco's Mini Oreo®
Chocolate and Creme.
you begin the class tallies, you will need 2 baggies or plates,
per group, to hold their Oreos®. Each group will also need
a pencil to write down results.
explained to their students that this was a project with schools
all over the world and also explained what information this project
was attempting to collect.
Students speculated on how many "regular Oreos®"
placed side to side would measure out 12 inches.. Then the students
speculated on how many "mini Oreos®" would measure
out the same distance (12 inches). They wrote these findings on
your black/white/smart board.
using the Oreos® they conducted the experiment and saw if
their speculations were correct or incorrect. The students wrote
this information down as well.
your class performed the first experiment -- they discussed the
different amount of Oreos® used for the regular Oreo®
and the mini Oreo®.
The class then divided into teams and gave each team the blank
Oreo® count sheet. They chose 5 different
items in your classroom and measured their items with both regular
and mini Oreos®.
Once all teams had measured at least 5 items -- they discussed
their findings!! They then voted on which 5 items they would like
posted to the blog to represent their entire class findings!
were also invited to participate in the
Oreo® SCULPTURE PROJECT.
Using ONLY Oreos® and the creme filling, students created
unique sculptures (such as trains, houses, etc).
