- Ask how many people they think might be able to fit on the ocean liner.
- Display a jar filled with 100 objects(pennies, cubes, crayons,etc.)
- Tell child there is 100 pennies in the jar.
- Ask: If I give you a penny from this jar, will there be enough pennies for everyone?
- Build upon child fascination with 100 to help child visualize a cruise ship's capacity(ability to hold several hundred people, their luggage and furniture)
- Ask child why cruise ship doesn't sink with so much weight on it.
- Display a clear container filled with water. Place a plastic lid on the surface. Point out that the lid is floating. lace a set of counters(frogs, pennies or any objects) beside container.
- Ask how many (frogs, pennies, etc.) could I fit on the lid before it begins to sink?
- Invite child to count with you as you begin to place pennies or other objects one by one on the lid.
- When the lid begins to tilt into the water and some of the pennies begin to fall off, count the total.
- Emphasize the last number in the count.
- Ask how many pennies are able to fit on the lid?
- Write number on index card or paper and display it next to the lid.
- Tell child that this number tells us how many pennies the lid can carry without tipping over.
