4th Grade O.R.E.O. Project

We participated in the O.R.E.O. Project again this year with Projects by Jen.  Students stacked Oreos to see how high they could get.  We found the mean, median, mode, and range of the data.

We also made sculptures when we finished the math!

Our Days of Play

So, it started innocently enough.  I shared a book called Not a Box by Antoinette Portis.  The plan was to share the book, then students would create "something" from a cereal box.  From there, we would write stories about our projects.  Well, after reading the book, I showed "Caine's Arcade".  If you haven't seen it yet, you so should!  Caine and his fabulous cardboard arcade inspired all students 3-6 to create their own arcade games out of cardboard.  The projects took a few weeks, so we deviated from the plan, but that's ok.  We can totally do that!  Each grade level had their own Day of Play!
