hundredth day for older kids

I have been using StephR's model for calendar math, and have told the kids that we'll do something for the hundredth day of school...but really I'm clueless. I've only had one "good" idea from my students and that was for them to bring in 100 items to dip in my chocolate fountain. but really, how long will that take????

Anyway, trying to think ahead, do any of you do 100th day events?

older kids could...

do 100 jumping jacks, 100 sit ups, 100 push ups, 100 squat thrusts, make 100 baskets (basketball)

What grade is it? In 5th grade you could be celebrating their 1000th day of school instead of 100. Day 100 of 5th grade is really 1000 days of school if your school year is 180 days.

So you could do all the same kinds of things as younger kids just do it with 1000 instead of 100.

For fifth graders the 100th day of school is their 1000th day of school since they started kindergarten. You could do a list of 1000 great words... Read 1000 pages or minutes.
For 100- create a list of 50 "tired" words and then 50 great words to replace them.

Combine 100th day and 1000th day

You could compare what 100 and 1000 look like:

~Make whole-class posters of 100 and 1000 thumbprints.
~Look at a map and see what's within 100 mile radius of your school, vs. 1000 mile radius.
~How many _____________'s (something your kids are into) could you buy with \$100? How many for \$1000?
~Name things that weigh 100 pounds and things that weigh 1000 pounds (or grams).
~Go to http://www.freerice.com/ and donate 1000 grains of rice.
~ Ask kids to bring in pictures of themselves when they were approximately 100 days old, and when they were approximately 1000 days old.
~ A picture is worth 1000 words- have students write a story to go with a picture.

Great ideas! I do have 5th & 6th grades together, so I could do the 1000th day of school...hmmm....1000 items for the chocolate fountain

Keep the ideas coming!

How about turning it into a charity project and seeing if the class could collect 100 cans to donate to a food bank?

Well you could do games, such as who can do something within 100 seconds.
They could bring in an item with more than 100 items on/in it.
I like the chocolate fountain idea
But you should ask the students for their opinions, to make sure they will enjoy it.
