A few weeks ago I signed up for the O.R.E.O. Project (click on this link to check out the project). Today was our Oreo day.
Of course we started out with our math worksheets (graphing, word problems, addition and subtraction)and writing. If you Google Oreo worksheets, you can find a TON of them! If I were to let them loose with stacking Oreos first thing then they'd want to eat them all right afterwards and then we'd never get anything done!
After the boring stuff was over it was time to break out the Oreos! The boys always have such a blast doing this project. I'm reminded of it through out the year and they always want to have another Oreo Stacking Day instead of doing anything else. I can't blame them though ... who can really pass up school work that you get to eat afterwards??? : )
Each boy made 2 attempts to make the biggest stack of Oreos that they could make. Snake had the biggest stack this year ... 23 cookies. (Way to go Snake!) Sonic's biggest stack was 17. We also had a race - who can stack the most cookies the fastest. This isn't in the final stats, but it was a lot of fun for the boys.
After our stacking activities we then filled cups with milk and had the grandest time dunking our Oreos and eating them.
It was so much (again) and I'd recommend this project to everyone!
