During the discussion after the game, formatively assess how well students are able to make connections between the pools in the game and the charts that are generated from the graph. If they do not see the connection, you may want to spend time helping them understand the different representations.
You may want to print more than one copy of the 3.2 Carbon Dice Game Posters, 3.2 Carbon Dice Game Tally Cards, and 3.2 Carbon Dice Game Energy Labels. Printing multiple copies allows more students to visit each pool at one time.
Stress that although we are using twist ties to represent energy, energy is actually not made of matter/molecules!
