It was a fun filled morning with the kindergarten and first grade classes coming together to explore 100 through hands-on activities, movement and food.
It took some planning to coordinate the 2-hour event but the effort was well worth it. We started the morning by gathering the children together to explain how the day would unfold. Six stations were set up in three classrooms and the students had 20 minutes to play, move and gather treats at each one.
Here is what we did...
|Can you count by 10s to 100? Here is a little encouragement.|
|Fruit Loops - 100 in a bag, divided into 4 equal parts to make a dazzling (and yummy) necklace with 25 "Loops"|
|Exercise! Exercise! C'mon everybody do your exercise! Give me 10 sets of 10!|
|Making art with three simple numbers 1-0-0.|
|What can you create with 100 Legos?|
|Students worked collaboratively to make a paper chain with 100 links.|
