St. Bernadette Takes on the Oreo Challenge

St. Bernadette student Ivan Irazi (Grade 5) eyes his stack of Oreos during the school's Oreo challenge.

October 9, 2013 - The Grade 5/6 class from St. Bernadette Catholic Elementary School have been thoroughly engaged in hands-on learning with Oreos.

On Tuesday October 8th, they participated in the O.R.E.O. project, a scientific math-based inquiry project in which hundreds of schools across the country participated.

The excitement began as students hypothesized how many cookies they could stack. Students then tested their hypothesis as they stacked their Oreos. The highest stack of Oreos was 26. They continued their math learning by finding the mean, median and mode of the class.

The learning excitement will continue throughout the curriculum as they will graph their stacking, write stories and then finally get to make sculptures with the yummy cream filling.

Of course, teacher Chantal Therrien's students admitted that the best part was snacking on the cookies when the project was complete!
