A Grain of Rice

As we continue our China study, we read A Grain of Rice as a read aloud. It was a cute little story about Pong Lo a poor peasant who wants to marry the emperor's daughter. He finally is able to marry her when for his reward he asks for a grain of rice and that be doubled each day for 100 days. We tried to do the math and figure out how much rice that would be but I think instead we made a mess.

I guess he did learn something because at dinner he got out the math sheet to short daddy just how much you would have in 13 days.
