Here's a DBAE 100th day activity: Use Wang Yani's "100 Monkeys" as an
art historic example. Have the kids analyze the work to figure out how
she made her monkeys, practice some, then do some math to see how many
monkeys each student must make to get 100 on a long narrow sheet of roll
paper. Watercolors work fine for this. When done it can be rolled like a
Chinese scroll. No reason why you couldn't do cranes, fish, whatever
else. In case you don't know Wang Yani is (was) the child prodigy from
China and there are several books about her work available almost
everywhere.
