We wrote Pi poems. My class may not fully understand Pi, but they used it to create some wonderful poems. Then we used the Tellagami app to create Gamis that recited the poems. We embedded the Gamis, along with the poems on Kidblog. Here's an example,

When I taught second and third grade we always celebrated Pi Day. We would plan our circle geometry focus for right before and after Pi Day. It was amazing how excited we could get young children when doing hands on activities using Pi.

My favorites for younger elementary students are the cutting and seeing Pi activities found here:
