“Tasty” Learning at St. Francis

Kendall Christie, a grade 6 French Immersion student at St. Francis enjoys seeing how high she can stack her oreos as part of her class' participation in the O.R.E.O. project.

October 3, 2011 - Students in some of the Grades 5 and 6 classes at St. Francis Catholic Elementary School had the opportunity recently to take part in a very “tasty” project. As part of the O.R.E.O. project, students all over the world collected data on how many cookies could be stacked. O.R.E.O. stands for Our Really Exciting Online Project and involves literacy and numeracy activities including data collection, scientific experimentation, and, of course, nutrition.  Teachers Donna Rinaldi and Lyanne Marion felt it was a great way for the students to take part in some hands on learning.  “The O.R.E.O. project encompasses a broad range of learning for our students,” Marion stated.  “With oreos being the hands on activity tool, the classes were so excited to take part in all of the experimentation including stacking, research, and estimation.”  As a treat, the grade 5 and 6 students enjoyed a big glass of milk with their cookies once all the hard work was done.
