Women have blazed trails and opened doors for future generations through their pioneering achievements in science and medicine, politics, civil rights, media, sports, and countless other areas. Marie Curie became the first woman to win a Nobel Prize for her pioneering work on radioactivity. Aviator Amelia Earhart was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Civil rights giants like Rosa Parks and Mary McLeod Bethune fought racial injustice and advanced equality at significant personal risk. From the frontlines of scientific exploration to the vanguard of human rights movements, these tenacious women defied societal conventions, overcame steep obstacles, and profoundly expanded opportunities for those who followed in their pioneering footsteps.

Find My Pi Day is an educational tool designed to engage students in exploring the fascinating relationship between birthdays and the mathematical constant Pi. The website was created to help people find when their birthday corresponds to the mathematical constant Pi. The website calculates and displays the digits of Pi and matches them with the digits in your birthday. This can be a fun way to celebrate Pi Day, which is observed on March 14th.

tag(s): pi (26)

In the Classroom

Integrating Find My Pi Day into your classroom offers a unique opportunity to engage students in exploring the fascinating world of Pi while enhancing their mathematical understanding. Engage and kickstart the exploration of Pi by using a collaborative whiteboard tool like Jamboard, reviewed here to do a graffiti board brainstorm. On the Jamboard show Pi's decimal representation and invite students to jot down everything they know or think about the number Pi as they see it, encouraging free expression and brainstorming! After students have shared connections to Pi on the 'graffiti board,' direct them to the TeachersFirst Special Topics page to learn more about Pi Day and its significance. You can create a virtual scavenger hunt using tools like Google Forms, reviewed here or Microsoft Forms, reviewed here where you can create tasks for them to search for specific information on the Pi Day website. Extend the learning experience by allowing students to investigate and research real-world applications of Pi in fields such as science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). They can present their findings with tools like Canva Education Templates, reviewed here or Prezi, reviewed here.

Pear Practice is a gamified learning experience that promotes collaborative learning and independent practice using tools provided by Pear Deck, reviewed here. Use Pear Practice to create learning experiences or choose from the large selection of activities in the practice sets. When creating a set, Pear Practice allows members to create multiple-choice, fill-in-the-blank, drawing, and drag-and-drop questions. Once a practice set is chosen, create an assignment for individual practice or start a live practice by choosing one of the game mode options. Options within live practice activities allow educators to set time limits for questions, allow guest students not in Pear Deck classrooms, and create random groups. Students join activities using the unique code or by sharing a link. When sharing as an assignment, specify a start and ending date and assign an accuracy goal for students to achieve. Students can retake the assignment as often as needed to meet the accuracy goal. Many activities in Pear Practice's public library correlate to Common Core Standards.

In Pieces is an interactive exhibition of 30 of the world's most interesting but unfortunately endangered species, portrayed through fragmented geometric art. Each species has a dedicated page with an animation and a brief, informative description highlighting its danger and the need for conservation. This artistic website aims to raise awareness about endangered species and illustrate how people can help with conservation. Each animal has statistics, a video, and a link to ways to help. The videos are housed in YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. Be sure to view the linked resources to ensure they are appropriate for your students.

tag(s): animals (275), conservation (82), endangered species (28), extinction (3), origami (15), statistics (116), tangrams (8)

In the Classroom

This resource would be great in art, math, or science. Download the images and have students use a drawing program to cut out shapes or use pattern blocks to replicate the downloaded image. Use this site in math class to enhance your statistics unit. The information is shown in various ways and provides students with a real-world connection on how statistics can be used to communicate information. Have students research a different endangered animal not shown and create a statistic presentation. In science, use this site to engage students in a unit on conservation. Have students view the site and record facts or statistics they found interesting. They could utilize a KWL to chart and record their thoughts. You can find many different graphic organizers at Freeology - Free Printable Graphic Organizers, reviewed here.
