8 Super Fun Classroom Activities for Pi Day

1. Create a "Pi City" Using Graph Paper.

 

Using the number Pi, fill-in the blocks according to each numeral.

  • Start with “3”: make your building three blocks high. 
  • Then "1": fill in one block.
  • "4": fill-in 4 blocks.
  • Keep going until you get to the end of the graph paper.

Check out the tutorial below for more details.

2. Make a Pi Bracelet or Necklace.

There are two ways to do this activity:

OPTION A - As shown below, the student choses any color s/he'd like and uses as many beads as needed to match the Pi digits.
