This may be a little weird, but take the students on a neighborhood
tour. Look at designs on manhole covers. Or whatever the politically
correct term for that circular disk of metal is called these days. You can
do rubbings. Make a mask. Have the students think up a creative circular
line dance to do around the cover. Design their own covers. Create a play
about what creatures they think might be lurking "down there." Ask the
students to figure out why the covers are round. Get into some great
geometry manipulative materials.

I am a bit nervous teaching out of my discipline. Any help is appreciated.
