|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
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
|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???

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

it perpendicular to the water...what happens. Place it parallel

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?
