The Biosphere Review Qubes

REVIEW QUBES are paper cubes that students construct and use to play an entertaining, and slightly competitive, dice game that provides up to 72 ways to review!

The game can be used by groups of any size, from pairs of students all the way up to an entire class divided into teams. Students roll the “Do Qube” and one “Concept Qube” in each turn. The “Do Qube” tells the student what they need to do to demonstrate understanding of the concept on the “Concept Qube”. Review Qubes are designed to provide differentiated study questions for all levels of Biology students.
