Pi Day Paper Chain

I am so excited for Pi Day.  A great way to bring math front and center and celebrate how cool numbers are! I found this lesson idea on the website  This is a super easy activity you can quickly do in our classroom.  All you need is construction paper, and tape (or stapler). Assign a color for each digit and get the paper chain going! Kids will never forget that Pi is so irrational that it goes on forever. They will learn hands on about place value and diameter of a circle.  Pi day is a great day and way to learn about math. How long will your classes’ Pi Paper chain be?  And if you want to learn more about Pi or need to brush up on what Pi is Wonderopolis provides a great page on their website.
