I have a couple questions on how this project is completed...What kind of bottles do you use? Do the children put anything in the bottles? Do they wrap up the bottles so no one can see what is inside of them but the students have to use the clues to guess?

I have been using this project with my first graders for years. I love it and so do they. One reason is it takes up so much less space than the poster board type projects they did in the past and integrates their writing of non fiction clues. We integrate it into our writing, math and science curriculums. This year my children will have a 100th Day Bottle Museum to display their projects. Our 100th Day isn't until February 15th!

Hi, I am going to try this lesson for our 100th day on Dec. 10th. Yes, we started school July 19th. I used to work for the Waterford School District at Houghton Elementary. I am teaching First Grade here in Arizona.
