PI Day Celebration

6th grade students from Mrs. Serino's and Ms. Czeizinger's classes joined in a Pi Day Celebration at Schuyler School.  Students broke up into groups and were each given a paper circle.  Students had to try to figure out how to measure the circumferences and diameters of the circles using any tools of their choosing (string, rulers, scissors, etc.).  Then students divided the circumferences by the diameters and found that no matter how big their circles were, the quotients were a little more than 3. That led to a discussion about pi.  The activity culminated with students listening to pi songs and eating pie!
