When I celebrate 100 Days of school, I set up a variety of centers for my students.
I like to involve a bit of art into at least one of their lessons, so I designed this “Cool To Be 100 Days Smarter” ice cream scoop craft, which involves counting as well as a bit of writing.
Completed projects make an interesting and colorful bulletin board.
I’ve included several poster options for the center of your display.
Take a look at the PREVIEW for lots of samples.
- "My students loved this! They love ice cream and building the tall tower of scoops was super fun!"
- "These are such fun activities for the 100th Day of School. My kids thought they were really COOL! They loved making the tall ice cream cone!"
The craft is very versatile with lots of options.
There are 3 types of ice cream scoops, with 7 bases ( cones, cups, bowls) to choose from.
Pick your favorites or give children a choice, to add more variety to your bulletin board.
Students can also add sprinkles, caramel, cherry or chocolate syrup, plus a cherry for the top.
Going along with the 100-Day theme, there are 10 scoops, which can be skip counted by 10s, or halved and counted by 5s.
Children can also write numbers 1-10 on the 1st scoop, finishing with numbers 90-100 on the last scoop.
Patterns come with & without numbers, so students can write in their own.
To add to the counting fun, there’s even a scoop with 100 sprinkles on it, which can be “hinged” to the top scoop with a piece of Scotch tape, then flipped up to reveal a student’s favorite flavor of ice cream, or another writing prompt you deem appropriate.
Besides the ice cream craft, I’ve also included a writing prompt activity, counting worksheets, bookmarks, some game cards, a “Happy 100 Day!” color-me poster and a certificate of praise.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a super-cool and really sweet 100th day of school.
