I have this idea where I would tape an index card to each of my students' backs as they walk in the classroom. They go around the room asking their classmates Yes or No questions about whatever is on their back. On a piece of paper, each student writes down what question they asked, if the answer was yes or no, and who answered the question.

Here's where you come in. What is on the index cards that I tape to their back?

Pi

Fun times!

I think you can write any vocabulary word on it you want the students to remember. I sometimes struggle with teaching the language of math. Often times speaking "math" is not enough, and this seems like a fun way for them to work on the vocabulary, use it, and understand it.
