Hadley School students will join students around the world when they stack Oreo cookies as high as they can on Thursday, Sept. 26.
This is the fourth year that Hadley fourth grade teacher Heather Carr has held the O.R.E.O., Our Really Exciting Online, project at Hadley.
Parents and other family will be on hand to witness the Internet based, multi-disciplinary project run by a teacher in Southern California.
Each student will get two chances to stack Oreos as high they can before the vertical rows tumble.
The students are to count the number of cookies in their highest stack and then get a class average by dividing the number of students who make stacks into the number of stacked cookies.
"The highest class stacking average was 20, two years ago," said Heather.
The objective of this project is to incorporate elements of math, science, language arts and art in a fun project, the teacher said. The project will take place in schools worldwide from Sept. 16 to Oct. 4.
