way that I help to make learning about circumference a little bit more entertaining
is to go out and purchase bubbles for my class. We learn the formula and reasonings
behind the circumference of a circle and then head outside. While there, I give
each group of students a bottle of bubbles and have them blow away! As the bubbles
are floating back to the ground, they are to catch them on construction paper.
The paper soaks up the burst bubble and forms a circle. Then the kids measure
the diameter and compute the circumference of that bubble circle!
