This is an easy activity to prep and use to review computation of three digit numbers, as well as place value.

All you need are 7 number cubes (a.k.a. dice), label stickers and a marker. Actually, you can use as many number cubes as you wish. |

I only had these circle stickers available, but they were larger than the sides of the cubes, so all I did was cut them into the squares. |

You will only need six stickers per cube.

I placed a multiplication sign and addition sign opposite to each other. In other words, "X" on top and "+" on bottom. |

This is what they ended up looking like when I was done. The stickers held on pretty good, so I'm not really worried about them popping off. If they do, I'll probably just cover with clear tape.

So, here are the directions to the game. Again, depending on grade level, you can make this anywhere from a 2-digit by 1-digit game to a 4-digit by 2-digit game. It just depends on students and what they need to practice.

This is a two to four player game. There are three sets to roll per round. The first roll creates the first number in the problem. The second roll determines the operation (x or +). The third roll determines the second number in the problem.

In this pic, you can see the first roll came up with a 1, 5 and 3. The second roll came up as "x", and the third roll came up with a 6, 4, and 4. |
