    Excited for this project! My son has the optional school assignment to make a project using 100 of any material of choice for the 100th day of school! We’re going to use 100 marshmellows and 100 toothpicks. His project will go on display for all to see 😉

    When I taught sixth grade, we would do a similar project using toothpicks and Mike & Ikes when we were learning about polygons. It helped the kids to be able to build all the shapes themselves!
