HOW DO YOU
If you're new to online projects and would like to test the waters with a fun, non-threatening task, this may be the project for you! Students of all ages are invited to provide cookies and milk to subjects and record how they eat their Oreos: biting, nibbling, breaking, dunking, whole, or some other newfangled way) and then submit the data to the project to identify patterns of behavior. The emphasis here is on working with numbers and graphing, but the tie-ins to other areas of your curriculum are as numerous as your imagination!
This interactive project entails cooperation between different classes. Check this out.
