We started the morning with our calendar activities.
Last day of the US puzzle and the unifix hundred line.
First thing, we read the 100th Psalm
Then, we read some cute books that I had checked out of the library.
Centipede's 100 Shoes by Tony Ross and Emily's first 100 Days of School by Rosemary Wells
Then it was on to our first set of activities. What can you do in 100 seconds?
How many bunnies can you color?
How many sets of 10 hearts can you circle?
How tall of a tower can you build?
How many hearts can you cut from squares of paper?
How many staples can you staple in 100 seconds?
100 pieces of snack mix.
Then we were on to some fun stuff. We determined weight and volume of 100 things... I intended to have them graph these but by this time we were kind of running out of steam.
First the counting....
100 Nerds, teddy grahams, pompoms, marshmallows, m&m's (peanut AND plain)
100 droplets of water and 100 tablespoons of water
Next the measuring and weighing (which I guess you could still technically classify as measuring)...
Weighing 100 tablespoons of water...
The total volume of 100 tablespoons...
Weighing the pompoms...
the marshmallows, nerds, teddy grahams, and m&m's...
now to determine the volumes
In case you're interested in our results...
|Item (100 of…)||Weight (grams)||Volume||unit of measure|
|Drops of Water||3||1||tsp|
|teaspoons of Water||567||2.5||c|
Then it was outside for a little vitamin D for our mad scientists. They ran approximately 100 yds to the corner (and back)...I believe 3 times. Mommy didn't. She was on the porch with the camera.
And last but not least, our hundred glasses (from last year) but this time with a twist... with 100 googly eyes.
