Each center is two pages (the reading passage/questions and the answer key). The center is self checking so the students can check their answers to monitor their understanding.

The basic directions are that the students will roll two dice, find the sum of the dice, and answer the question that matches that sum. However there are several options for you to choose based on your needs.

Option 1: This center can be independent work. The students can just move through the questions by rolling the dice. This makes it a little more engaging than a basic passage with question worksheet.

Use this center as a partner center. Have the students take turns rolling the dice and answer the questions. More information about this in the preview.

Each center includes a passage with 11 questions (2 through 12 because those are the sums two dice can generate). The center also includes an answer key for the students to check their answers.

Topics Include:

  • Natural Resources
  • The Workings of an Ecosystem
  • Earthquakes and Volcanoes
  • Inherited and Acquired Traits
  • Microorganisms
  • Single and Multicelled Organisms
  • Plant and Animal Cells
  • Causes of the Civil War
  • The Three Branches of Government
  • Turn of the Century Inventors

About the Digital Reading Activities

The Roll and Answer reading activities are also included in a digital version for use with Google Slides™.

The students use virtual dice (linked within the slides) or real dice to determine which question they will answer. A tutorial is included for students to help them use the virtual dice.

There are two options for directions: one for independent student use and one for partner use.

Digital recording sheets are included.

For answer keys, refer to the PDF.

The digital reading activities can be used for reading centers, digital reading practice, partner activities, or even digital distance learning.

Please see the video preview to see how the digital reading activities work.
