100th day and blubber

So 100th day was yesterday, and I was le tired when I got home. Here are some pics of ALL the activities we did. {Ms. Thomas needs to learn to not bite off more than she can chew}
AKA I shut the centers down due to my inability to tolerate that much noise. :) We did get everything done, but in a more calming manner!

Those 100 year old portraits CRACK ME UP. I am doing them from now on. We did the usuals, with the froot loops and all the ways to make a dollar. I did something new though, I love April Larremore and her amazing ideas! We did the pizza with 100 toppings. Too cute, and it turned out pretty yummy looking.

Today, we were wrapping up our penguin unit and we did the blubber experiment. I made the "blubber glove" AKA crisco inside a ziploc with another ziploc inside of that. Have your kids put their hands in ice water then observe. Then they put their hands in the glove and observe the difference. They realize how amazing blubber is....for a penguin. Me on the other hand, I need to get back on the ellipitcal at the Y. No blubber for this girl please!

 Here is the worksheet I made for the experiment!
