Story Cubes are 3-D graphic organizers. They help students organize information in a fun and novel way. There are multiple cubes suitable for each grade level K-5. (I have only used them in teaching with K-5 but if you check out my free video about using Story Cubes you'll see I had a rising 8th grader use it to find plot details and it worked great!
I have used these for years in my classroom and my students love them! I hope yours will enjoy them too!
