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'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!
