3.14 Pi Day


Happy Pi Day! The homeschool kids had an early celebration yesterday and gathered together for afternoon of Math Magic - making dodecahedrons, building paper castle, folding origami bracelets, doing tongue-twisters (try saying "duotrigintillion"), performing math tricks, reading funny excerpts from "Phantom Tollbooth", "Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi" and the likes, and most importantly, eating pies, the most appropriate way to celebrate Pi Day.

Afterwards, Serena & I made our way to the newly renovated Science World and discovered these wonderful little blocks called Keva planks.

We started stacking them and next thing we knew we were building this super tall tower. We impressed even ourselves with the resulting structure and attracted the attention of the staff who took a picture for their video display. A grand finale to top off our Pi Day celebration!
