Pi Day Scavenger Hunt:
Celebrate Pi Day with your students using this fun and educational scavenger hunt! Students will answer 15 total questions - 8 fun facts and 7 computational problems involving pi. Helpful hint: have students use 3.14 for pi & they will likely need to look up some of the fun fact answers online. *Answer key included*
Print each of the following pages on colored paper and hang around the room (my students also loved it when I placed some of the pages in the hallway). This will give you 15 stations (8 fun facts and 7 problems). Give each student the Scavenger Hunt Worksheet. Individually or in partners, the students will first pick a station to begin with (they can begin anywhere). They must solve the problem from that station in the designated box. Then look for that answer in the upper left corner of the stations. This will lead them to their next problem. They will know they are done when they have every box of their worksheet filled.
***The computational problems involve solving problems with pi. These include: circumference of a circle, area of a circle, surface area of a sphere, volume of a cylinder, and volume of a cone. Teacher Tip: Depending on the level of my students, I will sometimes put these equations on the whiteboard before beginning the activity so my students can readily use these equations. Enjoy!
