O.R.E.O. Stacking

The O.R.E.O Project is such a fun, hands on and easy global project to do! Students always remember this one at the end of the year, because let’s face it, playing with Oreos is always an experience! I’m sure they would love it more if they could eat them, but anyway.

This is a fantastic project done by Projects by Jen, she does so many easy yet global projects and I always look forward to introducing them to my classroom.

This project is exactly as it sounds…you stack Oreo cookies. We did a prediction activity the day before after reading through the rules and then we did an estimated class average (our estimated class average was 19 cookies). Students had all night to think about how to get the highest stack in the class. Then, on Friday, we got into groups and started our stacking! Some students just went for it while others had a strategy that they adjusted after their first turn. When everyone had their highest stack (our highest was 22 cookies!) we did our class average (which was 16 cookies, less then what we estimated). We entered our data into an interactive map where it shows all the participants from the O.R.E.O. Project. What fun!

Check out our video of all the fun!

What do you think would be the best strategy in stacking cookies?

    I think the best strategy is to put the O.R.E.O.S side to side when you stack them.
