Oreo Cookie Experiment and Procedures

Hypothesis 1:
If the cookies slide apart from each other on the cream, then the cream would go along with the
movement of the cookies and will slips out from the bottom cookie.

Procedure Part 1:
Divide into Press back Slide apart
Twist Slide 
halves on cream <- O ->

Discussion Questions
1. What happened to the cookie pieces? What happened to the creamy filling between the cookie pieces?

Ans. The cookie crust falls apart and the cookies pulls creamy fillings into a mountain-like shape in the middle.

2. Name a specific location on the Earth where this kind of boundary activity takes place. What type of feature is
produced by this movement?

Ans. Divergent boundary is the movement of two Earth’s lithosphere that moves apart from each other forming a space
between the plates tectonic and that is where volcanos are form.

3. What is the process called that creates new ocean floor from diverging plates?

Ans. Seafloor Spreading

Hypothesis 2:
If the one of the cookie halves was push beneath the another, then the filling creams will be pushed up to
the surface of the cookie along with some stains on the beneath of the cookie.

Procedure Part 2:
Divide into Press back Push one half beneath
Twist Slide 
halves on cream another half /^ v-

Discussion Question
1. What happened to the cookie pieces? What happened to the creamy filling between the cookie pieces?

Ans. The cookie breaks and the creamy fillings between the cookies were formed into a mountain-like shape.

2. Name a specific location on the Earth where this type of boundary activity takes. What type of feature is produced by
this movement?

Ans. When two plates come together and one was push beneath another, is known as convergent boundary, and this type
of boundary forms the Himalayas and the Mount Everest.

Hypothesis 3:
If the cookie halves are push horizontally against each other, then the creamy fillings will be pushed to
the same direction with the cookie halves and there will be a rip between the creamy fillings. For example, the
right section of the creamy fillings with break apart from the left section cream downward.

Procedure Part3:
Divide into Press back Push against
Twist Slide 
halves on cream horizontally ^] [v
Discussion Questions
1. What happened to the cookie pieces? What happened to the creamy filling between the cookie pieces?

Ans. The crust of the cookie edges falls onto the cream which after the experiment procedure it slips out from the lower
cookie.

2. Why this movement often is described as “horizontal” sliding?

Ans. It’s because of the movement of the colliding crust which it moves horizontally in the opposite direction, causing the
vibrations to form an earthquake or tsunamis.

3. Name a specific location on the Earth where this type of boundary activity takes place. What type of feature is produced
by this movement?

Ans. San Andreas Fault in California is an example of a transform boundary. Transform boundary forms not a feature, but
a halting motion, such as earthquakes.

4. Why do the cookie pieces not smoothly slide past each other?

Ans. It’s because of friction that cause the cookie to grind up each other harshly.

CONCLUSION:
1. Give an example of how plate movement that creates the Earth’s surface.

Ans. The movement of Earth’s lithosphere forms a new Earth’s lithosphere, but in the same time it also destroys the old
lithosphere, and one of the examples of the movement of Earth’s surface that creates new lands is divergent, divergent
boundaries often forms new features to the Earth, when there is a gap between the lithospheres pieces the hot mantle from
the asthenosphere which contains the molten rocks that was waiting to rise and cools down at the Earth’s surface
temperature.

2. Give an example of how plate movement that destroys the Earth’s surface.

Ans. The example of an Earth’s surface movement that destroys the plate’s land is convergent boundary, which the
convergent which one of the land will go beneath another land, when the land touches the mantle the land melts and
change into a solid-liquid like state, which the land that melts is also a process to destroy old land.
