Looking for all the amazing Pi Day activities all in one place? Look no more! This huge, growing page, includes activities for all ages, as well as challenging math explorations for older kids. Find just what you need this Pi Day in the list below!
In celebration of Pi Day (March 14), I have put together several 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. These are set to familiar tunes.
Another great activity that you can do with all ages is this simple Pi Day art project. You can do this outside with sidewalk chalk, on black paper with chalk, or simply on paper with colored pencils.
Next is a hands on investigation to discover the meaning of the number Pi and the formula for circumference! This is intended for grades 6-10, but could be adapted for use in the elementary setting with appropriate teacher or parent help.
And of course we can’t forget everyone’s favorite Pi Day read aloud! I have a fun set of extension lessons to go along with the book, Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi. Explore circles and circumference.
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!
