The Oreo Experience is a hand-on writing activity that focuses on helping students experience food through the eyes of a writer. This lesson contains a mentor text where the students can search for sensory details and figurative language. The lesson also contains graphic organizers, publishing pages, and step by step directions on how to conduct this Oreo Writing Experiment. My students absolutely love this lesson and every year some of the best writing is delivered from the Oreo Experience.
This lesson can be used across the grade levels if slightly modified. However, I have successfully used this lesson with 2nd-5th grade students.
Enjoy and Happy Teaching,
