This package includes 11 activities made for the 100th day of school! They can be used as centers or in a whole group setting.
Activities are appropriate for many grade levels and can be modified, if necessary, to suit your needs. For example, if you choose to use the graphing activity with 1st graders you may want to provide the scale for them before copying and the Paper Clip activity might be done as a whole class. Be creative and use however you wish!
All student sheets are provided and ready for your students to use.
Activities require minimal or no preparation other than copying the worksheets :)
Count to 100: a blank number grid for students to fill in and practice counting to 100. Students are also asked to skip count on the grid and identify patterns.
100 Paper Clips: students work in groups to measure a paper clip and make predictions/estimations about the length of 100 paper clips. They use multiplication and divisions skills by making equal groups and writing equations.
100 Words: students are challenged with the task of writing 100 words. They can race as a class, or in small groups, or, time themselves to see how quickly they are able to fill in all 100 spaces.
“If I Had $100”: students are asked to write about what they would do with $100 and why they would make that choice. You may choose to align this assignment with what you have been working on during your writing block or let students free write.
“I Wish I Had 100…”: students are asked to be creative and finish the sentence starter. They may not use money because of the previous activity. You may choose to align this with your writing lessons or let students free write. It’s totally up to you how you use this :)
“How Many Ways Can You Make 100?”: students are asked to see how many equations they can come up with that equal 100. They can use any of the four operations or any combination of them.
Making Words: students are asked to see how many words they can make using the letters in the words “one hundred”. Words must be at least three letters long.
100 Exercises: students are challenged to complete ten sets of ten different exercises. Each exercise is explained in detail but you may choose to model them for you class. Or, do all ten sets together as a class!
100th Day Poem: Please enjoy this original poem with your students. Glue it into a poetry notebook, read as a class and hunt for words you’ve been studying, or use however you wish :)
100th Day Pattern Block Graph: students are asked to sort and graph 100 pattern blocks. They have to decide on a scale for the graph and label the axes. You may choose to have students work in groups or independently. This would also make a good assessment of basic graphing skills.
