100th Day Fun!

My favorite part of 100th day is the old people art. This year we used wallpaper instead of fabric for the shirts.We made a circle map of what we might be like when we were 100 and then wrote about it.
I love how she piled the hair on top like a bun!

This guy told me he purposefully took most of the cotton off so it would look the fuzz he has on his head and it does!

I do it TLC style so I don't have templates to share.  I just precut the rectangles and the kids follow my oral directions to trim it into a head, etc.

We made crowns and glasses again this year.  You can click here to get links for these.
 We read 100th Day books.
The student favorite by far though was the Fruit Loop necklaces. It is always interesting to see who strings by color, who creates a pattern, or those that don't give a hoot and just want to be able to eat them!

 They had to count out the 100 pieces by tens first.You can get the sorting sheet here.
I got smart this year and taped one end of their string to the desk so no one had their loops fall off halfway through!
Last, but not least,  Wildlife Associates brought amazing animals for us to meet. I didn't get pictures but here is one from their site.

We were visited by a
  • Canada Lynx
  • Snowy Owl
  • Coatimundi
  • Coendou (Prehensile tailed porcupine)
  • White Tailed Kite 
It was so cool! This was a perfect lead in to our animal adaptations unit coming up and a great way to end a special day.
