UPDATE 2/23/2021 – Here is a Wakelet where I collect all of my Pi Day Resources!
Pi Day sneaks up on me every year. But not this time. Even though the official date (3/14/15) this year lands on a Saturday during our Spring Break, I am prepared. My 4th graders are studying “mathematical masterpieces” and Pi Day fits right into that topic. Plus, this is a super special year because the first 5 digits of Pi are 3.1415. Look familiar?
Personally, I plan to show my students this Mile of Pi video on TEDEd. They are also going to learn about Pilish and write some Pilish poetry after reading this awesome Pilish translation of The Raven (H/T to Martha at A Way with Words for that idea!). If there is time, they are going to look for their birthdays and phone numbers in Pi using this website. Knowing my 4th graders, they will probably also get a kick out of these Pi Day e-cards.
Will pie be served? Maybe if they can solve this Pi Day Sudoku Puzzle…
