April 22nd is Earth Day, and it’s the perfect time to celebrate our planet with some fun math activities!

Allow your students to step into the shoes of Eratosthenes, who originally found the measurement for the circumference of the Earth, with “The Librarian Who Measured the Earth”, a fun exploration of circumference.
