This is a winter circumference, radius, and diameter project I made for my fifth grade class. It involves measuring parts of a snowman.
If you are using it to teach, you could work on the project as a class. If you are using it as a review or assessment, then you could assign it for a home project or for independent math centers.
Students should be familiar with finding the measurements of a circle's diameter, radius, and circumference.
Students should also be familiar with rounding to the nearest half-inch.
Throughout the project, I use 3 for pi (instead of 3.14), since my students have not yet learned to multiply decimals.
This is a good project to do on a wintry January or February day.
