Pi Day is celebrated every year on March 14th (3.14). Here are some fun ways you can celebrate Pi with your students!
With Actual Pie
Here is an activity that ensures minimal messes (we hope)
Make a Pi Bracelet
Or a necklace, you can make it as long as you want. Just don’t try and go get to the last number of Pi 😉
Have a Pi(zza) Party
….with a lesson attached, of course.
Do a Pi Lesson That Will Blow Their Minds
Measure the diameter and circumference of round objects like cans and plates, and then divide the circumference by the diameter. The answer will be 3.14 (Pi) every time.
Play a Card Game
Take a break from all things circular and math-related and try something new. Click below to learn the rules!
Read Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi
This one is a MUST every Pi Day
Make a Pi Day Poster
Give each student a different section to decorate however they want and then put them together at the end on a black wall and discover the masterpiece.
Do a Pi Day Scavenger Hunt
Where students have a limited time to find round objects hidden in your room and take their measurements.
Build a Lego Pi-Line (or use paint and graph paper)
Really it’s a Pi Skyline, but we couldn’t miss the opportunity.
