Running in Circles is an engaging activity designed to get students up and moving while practicing working with circles.
Each question requires students to use their critical thinking skills to answer questions about radius, diameter, circumference or area. Multiple steps are required to determine the final answers.
This resource is ready to use! Simply print, cut and post the questions around the room, or in the hallway. I typically post the questions randomly, so that they are not in order, but I ask that the students complete the questions in order. This keeps them moving while doing Math, and the kids love it! Students can start at any number, but must find the next question in sequential order; this helps prevent any traffic jams at any one particular question. I have the students work in partners to complete this activity.
If you prefer, this activity can be used as a centre/station, with the same basic requirements that students complete all 20 questions.
- 20 question cards
