Measuring Circles Using Bubbles!

We used dark blue construction paper and bubbles to practice measuring the radius, diameter, and circumference of circles. Students blew bubbles on the paper, traces around the mark the bubble left when it popped and then measured the various parts. The kids had a lot of fun with this activity!

Helpful hint: Have the students stand up and lean over the paper so the bubble is blown straight down instead of at an angle!
