100th Day Celebration

Kindergarten to 1st grade : $7 per student / $3 per chaperone / school faculty free


The CMA celebrates the 100th day of school during January and February. Museum exhibits feature math related activities such as counting by ones, fives, and tens, embracing creative hands-on learning designed to showcase and celebrate the number 100!

To celebrate this wonderful occasion, we have designed many activities that reinforce the concept of “what is a hundred.” Math related activities such as counting by ones, five, and tens, creating patterns, using the hundreds chart, and much more, have all been designed to showcase and celebrate the number 100! All activities are oriented towards kindergarten and first grade students and are correlated with the Children’s Museum of Acadiana’s hands-on exhibits.

Curriculum Connections:

  • 1.MD.A.2 Understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps.
  • K.CC.A.1 Count to 100 by ones and by tens.
  • K.CC.A.2 Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1).

  • K.CC.B.5 Count to answer “How many?” questions.
  • K.G.A.2 Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.
  • K.MD.B.3 Classify objects into given categories based on their attributes; count the numbers of objects in each category and sort the categories by count

All “100th Day Celebration” field trips must be scheduled in advance and require a minimum number of 20 children participating.
