Cookie Election

This week we held an election to choose our class cookie! On Tuesday, we researched three different cookies - chocolate chip, NutterButter, and Oreos. We taste tested them and put them in milk to see if they sink/float and how well they hold together. Then we crushed them to see what kind of crumbs they make. We made a tree map to record our findings. Students choose which cookie they wanted to campaign for and created a poster with their group.

On Wednesday, each group shared their poster and explained why we should vote for their cookie. Then students voted by circling their choice and placing it in the ballot box.

Today we counted the votes and graphed the results. Then we analyzed the data on our graph and used it to draw conclusions about the election results. The students had so much fun learning about the voting process.
