|We started Pi Day with some poetry and figurative language. Students wrote a poem where the number of words in each line followed the digits in pi. Here are a few samples.|
|Then we reviewed pi by creating a pie on a paper plate and measuring diameter and radius Then we figured circumference and area.|
|Students measuring the tether ball court outside to write area and circumference in terms of pi.|
|Is that your final answer?|
After lunch we were back inside measuring smaller edible circles. They had to measure the diameter, and then figure out the radius, circumference and area of the circle before partaking.
|Find that area!|
|The Ding Dongs were a big hit!|
For my very first Pi Day, I'd say it was a great success. I got a few hems and haws from some of the old school teachers. I'm sure they didn't approve. Oh well.
My full day of activities are available on my TPT store here.
