Not only is March 14 Pi Day, but it's also Einstein's birthday - and that calls for a real celebration. So put on some music and let's get this party started.
1 - Make a Pi Chain
You need 10 colors of construction paper, one color for each digit. For example: red = 1, blue = 2, green = 3.... Cut the paper into strips and glue the rings together in order of Pi.
2 - A Pi-mile challenge.
After all that sitting and cutting and gluing, you need to get out and stretch your legs. Nothing better than a 3.14 mile run to get your blood moving and make you ready for some...
3 - Birthday Pi or Cake
3.14 - Decorate Pi plates: Glue a Pi symbol onto the middle of a paper plate and color it. Then write the digits of Pi around the outside border to as high as you want to go.
Great activities Sue! And hey, I'll take a slice of that Pi (That would be .5233333 worth!)ReplyDelete
P.S. I LOVE the fact that in Pi years, I'm only 15 1/2. Does that mean I get to behave like a teen today?
Isn't being a teen again (even if only for 3.14 days) awesome!Delete
Great Pi ideas! I also like that there is an activity for Pi cake too.ReplyDelete
that's so you can have your Pi and eat it too!Delete
Hope you had a happy Pi day. Fabulous activities!ReplyDelete
sorry to not be here to meet you, R - I had a pi in the oven.Delete
WOW--just (finally!?) got the graphic. Slow on the uptake! Here's a link to a mind-bogglingly brilliant pi-lish work of art. Enjoy (& rock on, Sue!) http://www.cadaeic.net/cadenza.htmReplyDelete
It's amazing how he keeps with the 3.141592.... I would never have figured out Pilish if you hadn't clued me into word length.Delete
