4th Graders Get Busy Discovering Pi

EMS 4th graders braved the cold weather to celebrate Pi Day (3.14) in the Little School Courtyard. They drew circles, measured the diameter and circumference with string and rulers, and explored the relationship (or ratio) between the two measurements...which, of course, they found to be 1:3.14....or π

It's one thing to tell a child what pi is, it's another to actually have them work it out and see it for them selves.  Experiential learning works best!
