In groups, have students race to see who can be the first to roll the first 10 digits of pi. You’ll need some 10-sided dice and a template for the first 10 digits like this:

### Idea 2 - a paper chain:

Create a PI DAY chain with loops of construction paper. Use a different color for each of the 10 digits. How long will your chain be?

First line: 3 syllablesSecond line: 1 syllable

Third line: 4 syllables

### Idea 4 - music:

### Idea 5 - art:

Using graph paper, fill in the blocks based on the first 20+ digits of PI. Color the books black. Then wash the paper with watercolors to represent the sky.
