What is a Radian?

I didn't get to teach Pre-Calculus this year, which was really rough because I LOVE Pre-Cal, especially all of the trig!  I was feeling nostalgic and thought I'd share an activity that I used at the very beginning of my trig unit.  This activity helps kids understand the concept of a radian.  And best of all, it involves CANDY which is the universal motivator!  Students use twizzlers as a measurement tool.  You need to use the pull up apart twizzlers, which can sometimes be a little hard to find, so make sure you don't wait until the last minute to get them!
