Question Cubes 1

Each student or student group should get two cubes (see image directly above and below) and roll both to help get those questions flowing.

  1. These are great tools. Several years ago I bought question cubes from Kagan publishing and use them. I have been reading, ” Make Just One Change” from the Right Question Institute. Thank you for creating this tool.
