September 2008:  Our stacks ranged from 10 cookies to 27.  (We had one unconfirmed stack of 35 cookies.)

Individuals estimated how many Oreos® they
thought they would be able to stack before
the Oreos® tumbled. Each child had two tries.

We wrote journal
                                               entries with our 
                                               predictions and our

The average of the highest results of each student was 18.  We submitted our results. 

We wrote sculpture plans, voted, and then created group Oreo® Sculptures out of the used Oreos® and creme filling! 

Sculpture photographs added to the photograph album above.

We participate in an international online project hosted by Jennifer Wagner at  This project is an opportunity to practice our Math and Language Arts skills!

Small groups of students stack original Oreo® cookies and count how many Oreos® they can stack before the Oreos® tumble!  Our results for different years are listed below.  After classrooms around the world submit their results, we compare our results to theirs.
