1. Assemble a Pi Day paper chain.

Just like our ol’ mathematical friend pi, paper chains can be endless … in activity time, length, and fun! As a class or grade, create the Pi Day chain with loops of construction paper, using a different color for each of the 10 digits. Each colored chain link represents a decimal place or a digit. Schools around the country have gotten in on this Pi Day trend and have even attempted world records. How long will your class or school’s Pi Day chain be?

2. Memorize those digits.

Hold a contest to see who can recite the most digits of pi, and reward them with… pie!

3. Sing a (pi) song.
