Dice Information:

  1. Six dice are needed per group - one of each color: red, orange, yellow, green, blue & violet. I'd recommend groups of 2-4 students. For a class size of 30, make 10 copies of each dice - using a total of 60 cubes.
  2. The foam cubes seen in the product image came from Amazon, specifically, the "Manipulate Foam 1-Inch Color Cubes, Set of 100" - not included in this resource. Any unused cubes can be used to make dice for other games.
  3. I favored the quiet rolling foam cubes. However, these could be replaced with:
  • Wooden cubes – use colored permanent markers (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet) to write the ions on the dice. Often available at local craft & retail stores.
  • Paper cubes – to increase the durability for years of use, use card stock or laminate before cutting. Search "blank cube template" online and write in ions from the provided list before making copies.
  • 3-D print your own ion dice-specific colors and ions listed in this resource.

Need a great, fully editable year-long resource to quickly group students & sneak in review with the group card names? See my Editable Student Partner Cards resource here.
