We are 100 days smarter!

Happy 100th day of school!  The one hundredth day of school fell on the PERFECT day.  In math we switched from customary measurement to metric and we were learning that 100 centimeters equal one meter.  We had fun races/competitions throughout the day.  Our first race was to make a list of five things that were shorter than 100 centimeters and five things that were longer than 100 centimeters. Then we raced to write down ways to make 100 (number sentences).  After recess we formed six groups and competed in teams.

Our first race was putting together a hundred chart.
