Product Description
“America’s favorite cookie” makes for a sweet science lab! This lab gives you a hands-on way to teach percent composition by mass, scientific measurement, accurate data collection, and data analysis. This lab would be appropriate for chemistry, physical science, and integrated science classes.

The goal of this lab is to answer the question, “Do Double Stuf Oreos really have double the cream filling?” This lab is a simple, yet powerful, way to show that science is about asking a question and then making a plan to answer it. As such, this can be easily adapted into an inquiry-based lab.

This product includes:
• Teacher Instructions, including detailed instructions for lab set-up, prelab seminar, and teaching tips, as well as several instructional variation and extension ideas (4 pages)
• Prelab questions and answer key (2 pages)
• Student lab sheet (2 pages)
• Sample data and answer key (2 pages)

This lesson can fit into one 40-minute class period depending on the lab skills of your students. If your students do not have much experience in lab or require more guided instruction, then you may want to allow two class periods to make time for a thorough pre-lab lecture, data collection, and in-class data analysis. If you choose to use any of the extension ideas, this lab can easily stretch into several more class periods.

Your students will really enjoy this lab and have fun as they learn. Plus, you’ll look like a boss for having such a great lab idea. I know this lab will prove to be a valuable and fun experience for you and your students!
