Circumference of Student Circle

Have instructions on the board for students to find the circumference of a student circle. They must hold hands to form a circle. Then they must work as a group to figure out how to find the circumference. It is interesting to see if your students choose to measure the circumference by measuring the diameter or by directly measuring the distance around the circle.
