Cubing requires students to look at a topic from six different angles such as: Describe It!, Compare It!, Associate It!, Apply It!, Analyze It!, Argue For or Against It!.  Teachers often create a visual cube that serves as a starting point when they want students to analyze or consider various aspects of a topic.  Cubes can be an after-reading strategy that requires students to think critically about a topic.  When students work with cubes, they apply information in new ways.  Cubes can be differentiated by interest and readiness. 



  • Design cubes based on interest or learning profiles.
  • Use the cubes as dice which students roll.
  • In math, create problems for students to solve.  One problem is printed on each side of the cube.
  • Create cubes around the Multiple Intelligences.
  • Incorporate Bloom's Taxonomy.
