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.

Option2: 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
Single and Multicelled Organisms
Plant and Animal Cells
Causes of the Civil War
The Three Branches of Government
Turn of the Century Inventors
