This review activity uses dice to debrief just about any learning exercise. Each die has six questions on it (e.g., “What did you learn?” or “What questions do you still have?”) Use the dice as a fun way to have participants think about what they learned from different perspectives. They can be used over and over, and participants will still have a unique experience as they roll different questions in different situations.
- Blank foam dice that you can write on with a marker (one per group) You can usually find this type of supply at a teachers’ supply store or craft store.
- (Alternative) Print out of the die pattern at the end of this lesson. If you use this approach, you will need a cutting tool and some glue (or clear, plastic tape) to assemble your dice.
- Prepare your dice. (You do this by writing questions on the foam dice or by printing out the die pattern and assembling the dice provided at the end of this lesson. Feel free to change the questions.)
- Practice the script.
Use the following script and instructions (or modify to suit your needs):
- “To review what we’ve talked about today, we are going to use these Review Dice.” (Show one of the die.)
- “Each table has a one.”
- “Each person in your group will roll the die and take a turn answering the question that it lands on.”
- “Go around the group and have each person roll the die and answer a question.”
- (Allow them to begin. After everyone has answered their question, you might want to ask a few participants to share insights with you from the activity.)
