Pi Day is March 14

On March 14 at 1:59pm, folks from all over the world celebrate “Pi Day” with games, activities, and pie-eating contests. Here are my best resources for showing kids how pi shows up in the real world and also how to learn about pi in a way that not only makes sense but isn’t flat boring.

Pi is a number (slightly greater than 3) that shows up when you divide the circumference of a circle by its diameter, no matter what size the circle is. It also shows up in other shapes like spheres, ellipses, cylinders, and cones as well as unusual places like summation series, number theory, probability, bell curves, and the Fibonacci series.

Over the years, I’ve collected quite a stash of activity sheets and games for kids from other sources. I don’t know where they all came from, so please respect their copyright information on the sheet itself when you share with others.
