100 Days

We've taken this whole week to celebrate the 100th day of school.

Our first project was making lemonade using the recipe from Curious George Learns to Count From 0 to 100


First, find 1 grownup to help you make this.

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water

Heat in a pot until the sugar dissolves - but don't let it boil!

6 cups room-temperature water
1 cup juice from lemons

Pour over ice and drink!

First, we made predictions about how many lemons it would take to get 1 cup of juice. Adam guessed 8, Kennedy & I guessed 4 and Aubrey guessed 5. Aubrey was right! We juiced our lemons and then followed the directions above. We talked about what dissolve meant and made sure we didn't let the water boil! Then we tried it -- very tasty!

We also made paper airplanes using the directions in the book.

Next we read Hetty's 100 Hats. We loved seeing where Hetty would get the next hat to add to her collection. We made hats from a newspaper using directions in the book.

I guess my camera was hiding for these projects - sorry, no pictures!
