Unique 2nd grade 100th Day Activities

Does anyone do anything unique in 2nd grade for 100th day of school? Our K and 1st graders team up together and do the usual activities. I thought instead of my 2nd graders completing the same activities for a third year, maybe I could find, with the help of my colleagues, something different. Thank you!

T-shirts

Our second graders bring plain white t-shirts and we write 100 days smarter and they stamp them with 100 paint stamps. The only "learning" activity I've really been able to get out of this is for them to pick 5 colors and stamp with that color 20 times, you could do 10 of 10 but I just don't want that many colors. They are very cute--sorry I don't have a picture right now! If you can think of any other learning opportunities out of this I would love to hear them!

Will go away this year in 2nd. We're going to do Dozenth Dozen Day with all our activities relating to 144 and dozens. Our K/1st also make a big to-do w/100th, and we wanted our kids to do something unique. We don't have all our activites lined up yet, though.

100th day

A few years ago, I knew a lady that was 100 years old and asked her to come and speak to our students. I taught 2nd grade and all of the students were extremely interested and asked great questions. I know that finding someone that is 100 years old is difficult, but it's worth a try.

100 balloons
Old 12-29-2010, 05:50 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #6

We blow up 100 balloons and make predictions of how long it will take to pop them all. (Less than you would imagine) It is a big hit. It's a great way to work on understanding seconds and minutes in time telling. Just make sure you let your neighbor classrooms know what you are doing - all that popping could be scary!

100 day food bank collection
Old 01-01-2011, 04:18 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #8

One year we collected cans of food for the local food bank. The kids lined them up in the hall and numbered the tops 1 - ? We collected over 300 cans of food - very impressive and lots of fun. You could set goals and estimate how many cans it would take to get down the hall, etc. A great service and learning project.

We spend the day by reading a variety of books about the 100th day. In math we measure and weight items until we can find enough for 100 feet and 100 pounds. Social stuides we talk about our community/country 100 years ago and what it is like now. I also have them figure out how many dimes make 1.00, pennies and nickles.

100th day of school activities

When I taught 3rd grade, I would let my students put together 100 piece puzzles. We would have competitions to see which group could finish the puzzle first. After each group finished putting the puzzle together the students would swap puzzles. The students really enjoyed working together with their puzzles.

100th Day

Our entire school does something very worthwhile: each grade level selects a charity for which they will collect 100 items. If possible, a representative comes to the school on the 100th day to collect the items. In years past, we have collected: 100 items for the homeless shelter, 100 items for the animal shelter, written 100 letters to soldiers at war, collected $100 for Haiti relief, collected 100 teddy bears for children's hospital, etc.

What a fantastic thing to do! I love this idea and although it has already passed (the 100th day) I will keep this in mind for next year! Thanks for sharing!

"Gross Day"
Old 07-12-2011, 07:24 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #16

I know I am late in posting... But I have a few ideas for the 144th day of school. When I student taught the upper grades celebrated Gross Day. The kids all brought in things of 12, "gross jokes" and told them to the class, made "gross" foods (like kitty litter cake), and other "gross" things. The kids loved it! Hope this helps for the next school year.
