O.R.E.O. – Our Really Exciting Online project!
I hope you will consider taking part in this annual classroom event that makes math fun!
Students will make predictions, practice counting skills, and record observations as they take turns stacking oreo cookies and comparing their results. The data collected by each class is then submitted online, where it will be combined with data from other classrooms all over the world. The final results will be posted at the project site on October 8 in a spreadsheet format, and you can then use those results to create your own graphs and charts.
Instructions, standards, activities, and worksheets are provided for you.
There are several cross-curricular components to this project, including viewing a map to see where the data is coming from, creating a timeline of the history of the oreo cookie, and creating cookie sculptures with the oreos once the stacking is finished.
Project dates are September 19-October 7, and registration is open now.
The project is coordinated by Jen Wagner. You can see her other upcoming projects, including next month’s Pumpkin Seed Count at Projects By Jen.
