This is a special event to reinforce math skills in the Pre-K classroom. It is an opportunity for students to share and work as a team and then submit their results to a global project. Parents and family members were invited to join us in this project.
The project is called the O.R.E.O. Project – which stands for Our Really Exciting Online Project – and is hosted by a teacher in Southern California. Since 1999, students from every state in the US, almost every Canadian province, and several other countries have participated in this project and submitted their results online to share with each other.
Each student (and any others who wish to be involved) will have 1 or 2 chances to stack as many Oreos as they can. (There are certain rules involved that will be explained when we host the project in our classroom.)
After every participant has recorded their stack counts, we will take everyone’s highest count and average them together for ONE CLASS AVERAGE.
