There are several ways to get the most out of this. My suggestion would be to use this off the back of a couple of board-based questions for pupils to think about while they settle and then they can throw the dice.
Some classes are quite excitable and others are a little too cool to get excited about much, but all can benefit from getting up and drawing a diagram, map or graph. The questions are yours to create but don't stop there - give the dice over to a pupil and let them set the tasks. This is good for a five-minute plenary or review of a previous lesson and can be tailored to several subjects. Industrial foam cut-offs are cheap (about pound;1-pound;2 or less for a cube).
