right? Some of the posts said 1,000th so I wanted to be sure. Here are some ideas that might work for you:
Give students a representative sample of height records for all 5th graders. From this information they are to find the mean, median, and mode. Then using the mean, they figure the distance one hundred 5th graders would cover if laid end to end.
A scavenger hunt for 100 facts about??? - Canada, your state, someone, money, etc.
Make a trail mix using 100 items of each ingredient.
Make a class book: If I had $100.00, I would buy ________. Xerox a 100 bill (yeah, I know you have one in your purse
) on the page and have each child write or draw what they would buy.
Trace each others' feet, tape them end to end down the hall or on the wall and put a different colored one or something to indicate every 10 feet so the students can see exacty how many 100 foot prints are OR see how far they go so they have to use measuring skills.
Have three jars of candy (or?) with one of them having 100 in it. Let the students guess which jar has the 100 (don't make each jar have the same thing so it's harder). Give the candy or whatever you use out at the end of the day as prizes or just share them.
Make 100 Valentine cards for a nursing home or to send to soldiers - or actually, any kind of card.
Clip 100 paper clips together and let the students measure and see if things are the same as, longer than or shorter than the chain. You could make it a contest to see who gets the most right.
Have the students draw a picture of what they will look like when they are 100 years old. You could have them write about the picture also if you need more activities to go with the project. This should be a hoot if you have a fun class.
Can you find some 100 piece puzzles and have the students get in groups and see how long it takes to put the puzzles together? Then they could be donated to a nursing home or senior center or something.
Have students write a list of 100 things (remind them it does not have to be material things) that they are thankful for (sorry about ending in a preposition).
Probably could come up with some more if you are interested.
Have at least 100 minutes of fun with whatever you decide to do.
