Measure a Bubble Print!

Suds up your classroom with bubble mathematics! Kids blow bubbles, let them burst on paper, and measure! They find the circumference, radius, and diameter of a bubble! Encourage kids to try to blow various sizes of bubbles on the paper. Then, tell them to grab a ruler and start measuring! Who will blow the biggest bubble? Visit PBS for a printable pdf to go along with this activity. 

Scholastic has a bubble blowing project for older kids. Students blow one GIANT bubble on their desk and measure the ring it leaves after popped.
