Happy Pi Day

It’s been a while – we have been super busy but we’re back… yay!

Today it’s Pi Day, (March 14th) so we decided to do some Pi Cityscapes. All you need for this activity is the following…

  • Graph paper, (we used 1cm squared)
  • Markers or coloured pencils
  • The Pi digits – 3.14159265359

This is a super simple activity but really helped create a fun visual.

First of all I wrote the digits down and then got the kids to graph the numbers – easy!
We left spaces for our decimal points, but that is entirely up to you.
Once we got to the end of the digits we just repeated the pattern until we got to the end of the graph paper.
I used trees to mark my decimal points.

In simple terms, Pi is a number that is just a little bigger than 3.14. It is the number you get if you divide the circumference of any circle by its diameter. It’s the same for all circles.

I love to combine maths and art and this was a perfect activity for that. 🙂
