Engaging premise to explore volume of cylinders

I love the idea of using Oreo (who does not love it) as the hook for an activity that connect several math topics: ratio, percent, volume, and Stat. I just want to point out that there are some discrepancies between the teacher&#39;s instruction sheet and student handout. This handout gives students autonomy to decide their approaches to figure out an answer for this question while the instruction sheet is more of a prescribed lesson.

I love this idea, but my students are in the 6th grade and our focus is ratios. I am going to modify this lesson so students can predict the ratio of cream to cookie for a regular Oreo and a Double Stuffed Oreo. Then they can test their hypothesis by measuring the cream height in millimeters. Thank you very much for sharing this idea!
