100th day of school idea

It feels like just yesterday I was sending my oldest daughter to her first day of Kindergarten. Now it's her 100th day of 1st grade. Her teacher asked each student to bring in 100 of something if they could. Here are a couple of ideas:

A collage of 100

You can use 100 pieces of colored paper like Hannah and I did, or you can find 100 M&M's, Raisins, pennies, etc..
The print out is found here

* Take 100 Lego blocks and build something out of it.
* Take 100 nails and nail them into a board.

Classroom activities:
*How many kids can do:
100 jumping jacks?
Jump rope 100 times?
estimate what 100 feet looks like?

*We are making a picture of ourselves to show what we think we would look like when we are 100. (picture later)

*Get other classes involved to make 100 students.

*Find 100 ways to say Hello in other languages

*Find 100 ways to make the earth a better place

*Who can find something in the classroom that we have 100 of?? (pencils? eraser tops? books?)

*String 100 pieces of cereal (Cheerios, Fruit Loops, etc...) to make a necklace with 100 things on it.

*Make a place mat with 10 circles  on it, each with the number 10 drawn on. (Should look like a rectangle with 10 circles)

You can use this to count by 10's to make: Trail mix or other snacks with 10 items in it. (The point is to count by 10's to reach 100).
