## 100th day of School

Here are some 100 day ideas;

List 100 ways you can say 'I love you' to your dear ones...

Here are some ideas:

• 1. What can you do in 100 seconds? Time yourself and let us know. e.g. How many times can you jump rope in 100 seconds?
• 2. What 100 objects could you fit in a 5 oz. cup? 100 beans? peanuts?
• 3. How tall is a stack of 100 pennies? 100 nickles? The coin of your choice?
• 4. Make number sentences that equal 100. e.g. 5 X 20 = 100 (3 X 33) + 1 = 100 (300/6) X 2 = 100
• 6. Find some people whose ages total exactly 100. e.g. Mom is 32 Dad is 35 sister is 9 brother is 3 friend is 11 cousin is 10 --------------- total 100
• 7. Toss a coin 100 times and graph the results... head and tails.
• 8. List what \$100 will buy. Get as close to \$100 as you can. Include the tax if there is any.
• 9. Create word problems where the answer is 100. e.g. Johnathan and Natalie walk 7 blocks to school every day and 7 blocks back home. They go to school 5 days of the week. On Monday, Wednesday and Friday they walk home, eat a snack and then walk to the park to play. The park is 5 blocks from home. They walk home again in time for dinner. How many blocks do they walk each week?
