Oreo Project 2014

Posted on

There is so more to an Oreo than two cookie wafers and some creamy filling!  Our class learned this first hand as we participated in this year’s Oreo Project through Projects by Jen.     We started with creating a hypothesis, then went on to brainstorming variables affecting stack stability, and then joined our buddy class in Ohio to a stacking challenge.  To get the variables, we had to analyze the Oreo very carefully.  We created a line plot on stack counts and used that data to determine stack average.  Our class also created an Oreo Book containing facts we learned about the Oreo and the line plot containing stack data. 

Take a look!

Can you guess the four main variables affecting the stability of an Oreo stack?

Another activity we did with the Oreo was to create our own “I Wonder If I Gave an Oreo” story based on the Oreo commercial with the same title.  Here is the commercial.  Stay tuned for our version of the same.
