to the O.R.E.O. Project!
year's project invited classrooms 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.
They measured the COUNT of cookies used to stack
-- NOT height of stack.
participating class needed at least 1 bag of Nabisco's Oreo®
Chocolate and Creme Sandwich Cookies.
saw how many oreos they were able to stack before the oreos®
were encouraged to speculate how many oreos® they thought
they would be able to stack and then compare their results.
were NOT to use anything to stablize the cookie
and they were NOT able to adjust cookies as they
stacked. (i.e....once they have placed the cookie and their hand
has left the cookie, they may NOT adjust that
student had TWO attempts to stack oreos®
and recorded the highest amount they were able to stack before
Teachers needed 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 needed to discuss
that at the end of the project, all results will be averaged!
Once the entire class had stacked their oreos®, they will
average all their results to turn in ONE class amount.
wiki (an online journal) was be available for all teachers to
use to share their ideas, worksheets, art ideas, suggestions,
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).
