PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This freebie is a fun challenge for students to try on Pi Day! The following items are included in this free product.

(1) Instructions and Tips for Teachers
(2) Student Directions Sheet
(3) Four Circle Templates

To complete the challenge, students pick a circle and must measure its circumference and diameter as accurately as possible. After measuring the dimensions, they divide the circumference by the diameter to see how close to pi they can get! I have done this challenge every year with my 6th grade students and they love it! Students that are upper elementary grades and older can all enjoy this challenge!

*Note: For this activity, you will also need yarn (or string of some sort) and yardsticks for each group to use!
