    When I was interning, I saw a center in a 2nd grade classroom titled: Magic Math Jars.

    They removed the label off of a baby food jar. Then they filled the jar with water and added food coloring and glitter. They they placed dice in the jar.

    Since this was second grade, they used two. Depending on the level of math you teach, you could add more to make it meet your needs. The students would shake the jar and then look at the bottom to see the number. I thought this was a great way to make using dice more fun with games!
