Hampstead Academy kids learn tasty lesson


The Eagle-Tribune

---- — HAMPSTEAD — First-graders from Hampstead Academy have been thoroughly engaged in hands-on learning with Oreos.

First-graders recently 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 23.

The learning excitement continued throughout the curriculum as they graphed their stacking, wrote stories and then finally sculpted the cream filling.

Of course, students said the best part was snacking on them when the project was complete. Visit the O.R.E.O. project at http://op2015.weebly.com/index.html.
