First Grade classes around the county participated in an O.R.E.O. project, including Mrs. Chapman’s class, Mrs. Williams’ class, Mrs. Braun’s class, and all of Oak Grove’s First Grade! It was tons of fun, and it all centered around cookies!!
Students stacked cookies to see how tall of a tower they could make before it tumbled and tallied their results. Then, they entered results on a spreadsheet to find a class average and to view a graph. They discussed the data using words like greather than, less than, and equal to (see example below).

Here’s a few pictures from the event:

Oh…and just in case your wondering, we did NOT eat the ones we stacked! ;)
