    For 1st grade: We used to do an assembly and Zero the Hero would arrive and talk about the importance of a zero.

    The kids also make hats with a big 100 on them --

    Kids bring a collection of 100 items to school and share -- think small

    100 pennies,
    100 pieces of cereal
    100 pebbles
    100 sea shells
    There are also plenty of books with ideas. I can't remember titles off the top of my head, but just google it.

    Naturally, you can incorporate all kinds of math activities with this unit. Have fun!!!

    I've heard of teachers doing anything and everything that has to do with 100
    estimating how far 100 steps will take you from the classroom
    Teachers coming in with collections of 100 pins on a coat or smock
    What might it be like in 100 years from now? (Journal idea)
    What was it like 100 years ago? What happened then?
    I would like 100_______, but I would NOT like 100 _______ (Journal)
    If you have been using a theme to count to 100 throught the year you could incorporate that too.
    I've even heard of someone bringing in their 100 year old grandmother!

    What would you do with 100 dollars?
    Sorry, I don't have greade levels for any of the above. I'm a first year, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet for my 1st grade. probably something related to the theme I have been using to count - balloons.

    Cool, I've never had any 100th day activities growing up, but now as a teacher, I plan to celebrate when the date arrives.

    *100 yard dash
    *measure the amt of water in 100 ice cubes (when melted)
    write 100 words they know (can do as a list or as a 100 day grid quilt)
    *mini parade in halls (make 100 day poster with each kid signing a certain number of times to equal 100) then have 100 links for the kids to make and carry.
    *Code Alphabet. Assign a number 1-26 to the alphabet. Does anyone's name equal 100 when added? Who is closest?
    *Play Bingo
    *Mosaic Art-Build pictures using 100 cutout shapes
    *Follow the Feet: Draw their feet a certain number of times to have everyone's equal 100. Then decorate and name it. Tape it down the hall and see how far 100 "feet" goes.
    *100 Fish Aquarium-Do the blue jello thing with fish. (google the recipe). Then make an extra big one and put 100 swedish jelly fishes.
    *100 day necklaces. Use cereal, beads, etc.
    *100 day Circle: Sit in a circle and the person holding the decorated stick says the next number, keep passing it around until you get to 100. Listen.
    *Puzzles: Complete 100 peice puzzles.
    *Connect the dots: Find puzzles with 100 dots
    *100 year old pictures: Have them draw a picture of how they would imagine themselves at 100 years old.
    *Diff ways to say 100. Make a tally graph to equal 100, write the number 100, write the word 100, count by 5 to 100 (by 10s, 2's). Use patter 10 blocks to make 100.

    Bonus question what class are we in when we reach the first 100 minutes of school?

    My grade partner and I will have centers revolved around the number 100. The kids will rotate b/w both rooms:
    filling in a 100's chart, counting 100 pennies, making 100th day snack, building with 100 blocks/legos, 100th day story, what I will look like in 100 years, and making 100th day necklace to wear.
    In the afternoon we will share a snack: each child has to bring 100 pieces of something such as cheerios, marshmallows. We will mix it up and serve to the kids. Then we will pop 100 balloons. We did it last year and the kids had a great time.
