Here’s a sure-fire winner for Pi Day: have your students create Haiku poems about pi, called Pi-ku’s. Students can create one, two, or three Haiku stanzas, as well as a graphic depicting their poem. This is a great way to bring language arts, graphic arts, and mathematics together in one place! My 10th graders are doing this for Pi Day this year, and my 9th graders are creating other artistic works for mathematicians’ favorite day. You can see some of their work from prior years at Mr. L’s Student Project Work.
– From Mr. L – You can view the embedded slideshow above or download my PowerPoint presentation to introduce Pi-ku to your students. This includes several examples so kids can get the idea.
