To use: Roll the die and put one game marker on the graph to show what was rolled. Continue until one of the columns reaches the top.

Because the die is so lightweight, it helps to give it a gentle toss up into the air to make it spin. My daughter loves that part!

After one of the cupcakes has reached the top, have your child record the data in a notebook or on a piece of paper. You can do the activity several times, like we did with the coin toss, to see if you get different results. You can then discuss with your child why the results changed. This is a good introduction to probability.

You can also guide your child with questions about the data:

“Which cupcake was rolled the most?”

“Which cupcake was rolled the least?”

“Did any cupcakes have equal amounts?”

“Did any cupcakes not have any rolls?”

“Why do you think that happened?”
