First grade students at West End Elementary School celebrated the 100th day of school through engaging Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics activities on Feb. 15. Dressed like 100 year olds, each student filled out a packet corresponding with various STEAM stations.

Among the activity stations, students colored 100 day of school hats, filled in missing numbers on a 100 number chart, tried stacking 100 cups and figured out how many jumping jacks and push-ups they could do. In addition, the first-graders experimented with water, predicting how much of a glass would be filled after adding 100 droplets of water. They also worked together at a weighing station comparing what weighed more such as 100 pennies versus 100 pencils.
