I like your film of this relationship, but when I teach 7th grade circles, I actually give them 3 different circles and have them measure the diameter and get a ballpark of the circumference with string. It is a great activity. I do love visuals though. Another big visual that hits home with my kids is that a line is a straight path of an infinite line of points. I use a visual with a desmos activity where the kids pick points. When they share with the class and we get enough points they see the line forming. This also really pushes home the idea that when we are plotting points, we are really “highlighting” a specific point.
