Students celebrate Pi Day by working with the circle formulas in this math pennant activity that doubles as classroom decor.
Students are asked to find the area or circumference of a circle. Some questions ask students to find total pie area given the area of one piece or to find diameter given radius and vice versa.
Most pennants include a "Fun Fact" about pi that students can read as they complete their circle problems. Once a pennant is complete, it can be colored and then hung along a string in your classroom to celebrate Pi Day!
*This set of pennants is meant for younger kids (grades 6+). If you are looking for more challenging circle problems: Pi Day Pennant.
(3 Pi Day activities for the cost of 2: Pi Day Activities Bundle)
Included in this activity are 20 pennants, an answer sheet (if you would like students to also record their answers for credit) and an answer key. Each group of students can be given a set of pennants, scissors and either glue, tape or a stapler. Students can be in charge of cutting out the pennants. Groups can compete to see which group can complete the most pennants or your entire class can add pennants to one string as they complete each one. You may also choose to have your students color their pennants to add to your classroom decor.
