    Oh dear god. When I first read this, I thought it was 100 items for 100 days.

    I may be dense, but what’s the purpose of the project? What do kids learn by collecting 100 of something and bringing it to school?

      Hi LMo,

      As I elaborate below, for many students it’s their first school homework project and it allows them to help formulate ideas, organize their thoughts and then express themselves. It’s usually for K, first or second grade students.

    I am not familiar with this project. Can you provide some background information on it? Thanks.

      Many schools like to celebrate the “100 Days” of school as a milestone. It’s usually celebrated by the lower grades in elementary school.

      For my son, it was his first school/homework project and it was in first grade. Each child was asked to put on a poster “100 Things” that were interesting to them. Some children glued 100 different animals or made 100 different flowers and put them on the poster board. Others organized things in 10 groups of 10 under one overarching theme.

      In short, it’s a “first project” that I have seen many school children around the country do. Hope that helps.
