A Hundred Steps through the Snow

Today marked our hundredth day of school! Children brought in a hundred things from home...buttons, paper clips, beads, dried beans, legos, and so on. We counted, sorted, weighed, and measured our items, remarking on how the same quantity of items can have such different volumes and masses. We then pranced out to the snowy field near school and saw how far we could go taking 100 steps. Big steps, little steps, side steps, skipping steps, fast steps, slow steps all got us different distances.
