Have you heard of Pi Day before? (No, I did not spell pie wrong.) March 14th, 3-14 is often called Pi day after the number π 3.14. I always love doing a little something just for fun on that day. This year, I made a Pi puzzle for my kids. And there will also be pie with an “e” at the end. (You can see another pi day activity here.)
So, if you like to celebrate quirky holidays like this, this is the perfect activity for you to use on Pi Day! Start by reading Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi, because it is just a great math book! It is the perfect Pi Day reading material. Then try out this pi puzzle.
I took the numbers of Pi and put them right on to a circular puzzle. Also included with th puzzle is a number key because who has all of that memorized?
It’s a little tricky since there are duplicates of certain numbers, but that is what makes it so fun! (Look at all of those 3’s)
Just in case you forgot. (It is math after all. ) Pi is the numerical value of the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter (approximately 3.14159). The number is infinite with no apparent pattern. My kids and I like to try to memorize the digits as far as we can. (They are better than me at it~ I usually only remember 5) This puzzle goes out to 26 digits.
But really, Pi Day is just a great excuse to eat pie!
