Pi Day Activities

On 3/14 our class celebrated Pi day!  We had an awesome lineup of fun activities to introduce young learners to Pi.

We measured the diameter and then multiplied 3x that of the basketball court circle, hula hoops, cups, and other circles.

A midevil tale of how a boy saves his father by finding out the value of Pi.

Number strips to make a Pi chain!
 It's a great visual to remind us that Pi doesn't repeat and has no pattern.

Check out how long it got!  If you stop by school in the next few weeks, you'll see it in the hallway too!
