|9. Take the words Oreo Double
Stuf Cookie and create as many words as you can.
|10. Create an ADJECTIVE BULLETIN BOARD and have your
students create word strips with words they think describe Oreo
|1. Using the data collected
from your oreos -- convert your data from ounces/pounds to grams/kilos.
|2. 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.
|3. Before you begin the project
-- have your student estimate how many Oreos will be in the Regular
bag and how many will be in the Double Stuf bag. Open the bags and
compare their estimations to the actual count.
THEN -- measure the bags and figure out how much larger the bag
would have to be to have the same amount of Double Stuf as the Regular
|4. Would 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!!
|5. Using 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???
|6. Visit the COOL
COOKIE MATH website for a great class activity!!
|7. Create 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
|8. 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 1 time
a week through the project to see how the amounts will fluctuate!)
OLDER STUDENTS -- create a graph to display your data!!
|9. Purchase the book "Cereal Math".
Boost kids' math skills with these irresistible, hands-on activities

site as well!)
|2. Create moon phases by using Oreo
Here for detailed directions!
|3. Will 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 next level!!
|4. How far will an Oreo roll
from the top of an inclined plane set at 3 inches, 4 inches, 5 inches..etc
|5. Is an Oreo more dense crushed
up or whole? (Compare both regular and double stuf.)
|6. 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 candy.
|7. Will 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
|8. How strong is
an oreo? How much weight could it take to "crush" an oreo?
|9. How fast does an oreo dissolve
in water, soda, milk, etc.
|1. 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
