Five for Friday, 100th Day Style!

February is such a crazy-busy month! We've been talking about Valentines, black history, dental health, and presidents! Phew! We've also had the 100th day of school, so I'm gonna Five-For-Friday about that (do you like how I made that a verb??)

Happy 100th Day!!!!
We had a great time celebrating the 100th day. We started the day counting to 100 with Jack Hartmann. This is my students' FAVORITE counting gets them moving!

After lunch, I gave students their 100th Day ticket. This has several activities they can choose to do, and when they finish each one, we check it off the ticket. Click {HERE} to download the ticket I used, and then edit it to fit your own activities.
We used this AMAZING freebie to help us. It's got over 150,000 downloads on TPT, so you've probably already seen it  =)

The freebie has a great mat for making fruit loop necklaces. My kids make 10 groups of 10 fruit loops (all fruit loops in one group are the same color) and then string them on their necklace.

The freebie pack also has a writing sheet for what they would buy with $100. A jeep, a house, a diamond necklace...I need to find out where these kids shop!!
 One of my favorite activities was "What can I build with 100 cups?" The kids made some really neat cup creations!

My school is working on becoming a STEM school, so we had an engineering challenge to end the day. The kids had to build a boat out of aluminum foil, popsicle sticks, and straws that would float with 100 "penguins" (AKA paper clips).
When they finished, the kids tested their boats to see if they would float. Most of them had success!
What's your favorite 100th day activity?
