Tool #7

This year my students will participate in the O.R.E.O project along with their fellow kindergartners from other Frostwood classrooms.  Information on the O.R.E.O. project can be found at http://projectsbyjen.com/.

     Content Objective:
     *  TLW collect information about objects and events in their environment.
     *  TLW pose questions, collect data, and record the results using objects,
         pictures, and pictographs.

     Implementation:
     *  September 17 - October 12

     Tools:
     *iPads
     *Mini's
     *Using these devices, TLW record their findings on wallwisher.com.

     Description:
     Students will observe how many oreos they are able to stack before their
     oreo towers tumble.  Students are encouraged to speculate how many
     oreos they think they will be able to stack and then compare actual
     results.  Once the entire class has stacked their oreos, they will average
     all their results to turn in one class amount.

     This project, open to students all over the world, will also be ongoing in
     the other kindergarten classrooms at Frostwood.  We will use the
     technology to share results and post our reactions to the project.
