      • Each student will have 2 attempts to create a cookie stack.
      • Students will place one cookie on the paper plate/table cloth and add one cookie at a time to the stack.
      • Students may NOT adjust the cookie after they have placed the cookie on the stack and moved their hand away.
      • Cookies need to be freestanding and NOT leaning against any kind of support or use any kind of adhesion so they stick together.
      • Cookie needs to be a regular cookie and not separated in ANY way.
      • Another student should be tallying as the student stacks.
      • A tumble has occurred once 1 or more cookies have tumbled off the stack. The complete stack DOES not need to completely tumble for it to be called a tumble.
  • How many do you think you can stack? Add this to our OREO Project Spreadsheet
  • Let's stack OREOs - outside on Kindergarten tables
  • Record results on our OREO Project Spreadsheet
