100 Reasons to Celebrate

Frank J. Carasiti Elementary School first-graders in Christina Capaldi and Erin Glennon’s class were given a glimpse into the future as they took part in a multidisciplinary project this February.

In honor of one classmate’s 100-year-old great-grandmother and the upcoming 100th day of school, the students used their imaginations to envision what they would look like at 100 and made predictions as to what changes they would see in the world.

To better understand the advancements that have taken place over the last 100 years, they developed interview questions for their guest and displayed her insight on a large poster board.

To conclude the lesson, the students dressed themselves as centenarians on the official 100th day of school, drew images of their aged selves and created a world news report on the happenings of the year 2116.
