$100 Word Challenge!

This is a simple concept, yet the kids love it! Students who are usually reluctant to do sums, are eager to work out how much their names add up to. Anyone that is lucky enough to have a ‘x, y or z’ in their name gets very excited!
Discuss with the class if the length of their name always determines the amount it is worth. Is a short name always worth less? Is a longer name worth more?
Challenge the students to see if they can come up with a word that has a value of exactly $100.

Here are a few $100 words: elephants, straws, cousins, stress, explains, writing, squares

Can you find more?

Other ideas:
– Add up their spelling words to see which is the most/least expensive.
– Who can find the most expensive word in the dictionary?
– Using an atlas, find the most/least expensive country.
