Instructional Ideas

  • Complete the activity in groups, as partners, or individually
  • Finish the questions before or after rolling the dice, depending on skill level (answer as hypothesis or conclusion)
Classroom Considerations

  • Lesson requires 100 rolls to record the data, but younger kids could roll it fewer times if necessary
