## Enhance Your Math Lessons with these Fun Montessori Pi Day Activities

**Enhance your Math Lessons with these Fun Montessori Inspired Pi Day Math Lessons**

My High School math teacher had all the digits of pi wrapped around the upper portion of the classroom wall like a border. Any student who had memorized them all by the 14th of March got bonus points in the class. Only a few kids were able to accomplish this feat. My teacher celebrated by bringing in pies and having a fun “pi-day” in class.

**You can incorporate Pi-Day into your homeschooling as well. **

** Here are a few ideas to get you started planning your "Pi Day" School Day:**

- Talk about what Pi is: Bake a pie- math, reading skills, and snacks! What more could a homeschooler want??

- Cylinder works,

- Pi-digit matching,

- Fractions with circles (our Fraction Kit is a great option for this!),

- Use a compass to make different size circles,

- Measure out 3.14 inches or feet of string,

- Have pot pie for dinner,

- Number writing practice writing the digits of Pi,

- Read about famous mathematicians,

- Research how it got the name “Pi”,

- Take a field trip to a local pizza place and get a lesson on spinning the perfect pizza pie,

- Check out Pi day activities at your local library,

- Read the book Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi,

- Practice making the Pi symbol in rice, sand or with our grain set,

- Make the Pi symbol out of playdough or clay,
