5th Grade Pi Day

5th graders at GSES look forward to celebrating Pi Day each year on March 14th, or on the Friday closest to the 14th. This is a cross-curricular opportunity for the students to learn about circumference through literature, art, writing, math, and food! Each student is given an individually wrapped pie to use for hands-on discovery and understanding of circumference, diameter and how to find Pi. The lesson ends with the class enjoying the pies that they used to find Pi!
