                     100TH DAY OF SCHOOL

        http://mathforum.org/t2t/faq/faq.100.html

  Chances are that some time in January or February your
  students will be attending school for the 100th day this
  school year.

  While 100th Day can be a lot of fun, it is important to
  remember the mathematical significance of the celebration.
  Counting up to 100 for the 100th day of school gives
  teachers many special opportunities to investigate place
  value.

  The discussions and links to Web resources found in the FAQ
  provide many ideas to make your 100th Day a memorable
  experience for your students.
