In celebration of Pi Day (March 14), I have put together a couple of Pi Day Activities to make the celebration even more fun! The first is a sing along with silly Pi Day songs that can be used with any age.
The second is an investigation to discover the meaning of the number Pi and the formula for circumference! This is intended for 6-10 graders, but could be adapted for use in the elementary setting with appropriate teacher or parent help.
Next I have a fun set of extension lessons to go along with the book, Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi. This is a must read on Pi Day! 😉
Finally, if you would like to spread the Pi Day Cheer, print out these adorable Pi-lentines: friendship cards to pass out on Pi Day!
And check out the huge list of Pi Day activities below!
Have an activity to add to the list? Let me know if you have any favorite lessons, games or activities to share with other math geeks!
