100 Days Smarter: 
Each student wrote four facts they've learned since September. Then we connected all of the facts in a paper chain and displayed 100 facts, showing that we're now "100 Days Smarter" :)

1-0-0 pictures:
Each student was given die cuts of the numbers 1, 0, 0 and had to create a picture using the numbers. That was all of the direction we gave - and look how AWESOME they turned out:

 If I was 100 Years Old...
The students completed a creative writing assignment in which they imagined their lives at age 100. They had a lot of fun using their imaginations...hence the man in the top left :)

I could...I couldn't...
This center asked the students to imagine what they could and could not do.
For example:
I could carry 100...but I couldn't carry 100...
OR 
I could eat 100...but I couldn't eat 100...
Some of my favorites were:
*I could carry 100 paperclips, but I couldn't carry 100 sumo wrestlers.
*I could eat 100 pieces of chocolate, but I couldn't eat 100 anchovies
*I wish I had 100 dollars, but I don't wish I had 100 brothers

And what makes this day even more exciting for my fifth graders was that this was their 1000th day of school! (5 years (K through 4) x 180 = 900 + 100 days of 5th grade = 1000!
We did this fun FREE activity from Meredith Anderson:
1000th Day of School! Celebrate this milestone with your 5
The students were challenged to figure out how many hours and minutes they had spent in school in 1000 days! Some of them were whining about spending so much of their lives in school - I told them that this is just the beginning :)

Have you already celebrated your 100th day of school? 
I'd love to hear your favorite idea of how to celebrate - leave a comment below! :)

  1. I've never really thought of doing 100th day of school activities with my 5th graders before, but you have inspired me for next year! I had to create a 100th Day of School pinterest board to pin all your great ideas so I wouldn't forget!

  2. Love the I could/I couldn't center! I can see some very interesting answers on that one! Our 100th day has gotten pushed back because of all our snow days! I think it it next week now! I'm going to have to plan to do something fun! I'm also your newest follower!

  3. I never thought of the 1000th day of school for my fifth graders - awesome idea! We do a lot of 100 day activities with the younger kids in our school, but I feel as though it's not as fun for them as they get older. I will definitely have to do 1000th day though!

  4. This is such a neat idea for an upper elementary 100th day activity! We haven't had our 100th day yet so this would be great! Love, love, Jessica! :) I think I could make the 1000th day work for my 4th graders if I include PreK?
