How To Play:
* You can reuse the dice graph board if you use colored tokens instead of colored pencils or crayons. If you go this route you may want to laminate the dice graph so you can use it again for later.
* Another fun way to play this game is playing teams. With four players, you can pair the students together for two-person teams. Each team will share the same or pencil to mark the boxes.
