The lesson can be completed in three class sessions. The first session should take place prior to the 100th day of school, the second session on the 100th day, and the third session after the 100th day.

In preparation for the at-home activity, prepare a sample 100th day bottle to share with students as a model of what they will be doing at home. Write out three descriptive clues and place a label on the bottle. Place the bottle in a bag to conceal it. Have another empty bottle on hand.
