REVIEW QUBES are adorable little paper cubes that provide your Life Science students up to 72 ways to show what they know about the Immune System and Diseases! Students use the provided templates to construct paper dice and then use them to play an entertaining, and slightly competitive, review game.
So, throw away your old review sheet and try this fun cooperative learning activity that is the perfect combination of ENGAGING and EFFECTIVE!
This set of REVIEW QUBES is designed for middle school life science and can be used by groups of any size, from pairs of students all the way up to an entire class divided into teams. They can also be used to randomly present bell ringer or exit pass questions. Your students are gonna love this!
