School kids look forward to the big 100th day of school. Included here are over 15 activities for the 100th day of school. Activities for the 100th day of school help children learn number sense and the value of 100.
My oldest son was assigned a 100th Day of School activities assignment when he was in kindergarten.
He loves Lego so he counted out 100 Lego bricks and built a creation with them as his project.
At the time, my preschooler wanted to take part in this activity too. She was doing preschool at home. We gathered 100 stickers for her. She stuck them on a piece of paper.
A preschooler marvels at 100 items! It is always such a big number for them to comprehend.
This list of 100th day of school activities incorporate art, math and hands on crafts. It is a great way to teach a big concept while allowing children to be creative in their own way.
I gathered together a big list of 100th day of school activities from my own collection and from around the web. These are great ideas for school age kids and preschoolers too.
