In addition to dressing up like geriatric patients, the kiddos enjoyed the 100 piece puzzle challenge. Groups of 4-5 students worked collaboratively to try to be the first group to put together a 100 piece puzzle.
We also wrote how we are "100 days smarter" to tell about something we have learned thus far this school year. Recess did not count! :-)
My classroom was filled with parent volunteers who helped us make 100 day hats. We also estimated and measured how much of a cup 100 drops of water could fill, and count by 10's to 100 to complete a 100 day ribbon strand. The Solo cup structure challenge of using 100 cups to build a struture proved to be one of the favorite activities of the day so I brought them home to let my own boys argue over them. Needless to say, it took about an half hour until "Hey! I was using that one!" "Stop it!" "Moooom! He just knocked down my whole thing!" Why did I bring these home again?!!!
Anywhoooose.....the cups were proving to be the favorite at school until.....
Activity Days are a ton of fun but no lie I was in my jammies by 7PM and in bed before 10. Of course, I saved some time to watch "The Bachelor" and then ask myself later......why? Two hours of my life I'll never get back.
