Pi Day only comes along once a year and this year was extra special because if you round up, the date 3.14.16 is actually Pi (Greek letter “π”). π is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159 plus about a trillion digits. Our homeschool co-op decided to celebrate this special day with poetry, pie, crafts, games, and the books. Check out our wonderful day!
Pi friendships bracelets were a huge hit and lots of fun to make. The children enjoyed rotating through the various activities and then settled down for story time with a slice of pie each. What did we read? Why Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi, of course!
They loved writing Pi-ku poetry, too! Any excuse to write poetry, right? I love homeschooling because we get to combine so many subjects. We combined art, poetry, and maths for a spectacularly memorable day.
