In celebration of π (Pi) day AIMS invites you to enjoy the free activities about circles or circumference provided below:
K-1: Eggsploration Station
Students will observe and explore some properties and attributes of eggs; and use non-standard units to measure eggs in a variety of ways including mass, circumference, and volume.
2-3: Delivering Diameters
Students will find the diameters of several circles, and make connections between the diameter of a
circle and real-world applications.
4-5: Circle Sighs
Students will use paper clips to draw circles, determining their radii and diameters.
6-9: Circle Cover-Ups
Students will determine the area of the radius square and its corresponding circle by counting, use a ratio to compare the area of the circle to the area of its radius square, develop a formula for the area of a circle, and relate their findings to the formula for the area of a circle.
These activities will be available for download through Monday, March 15th, 2010.
