Roll a single or double dice with a keystroke using — wait for it — a Google Spreadsheet!!!
Google Sheet Interactive Dice
This template is an example of a clever way to start with a Google Spreadsheet, add a few formulas, change a little of the formatting, and end up with something really cool!
Note – At some point, I hope to provide video instructions so that students can learn some programming skills while creating their own interactive dice. But in the meantime, I wanted you to be able to start using this. Feel free to “reveal” the hidden columns and rows to see how this was done.
Using the Template:
It is as easy as 1, 2 3!
- Click here to make a copy of the template.*
- Click the “single dice” or “double dice” tab at the bottom of the sheet.
- Follow the on-screen prompt to roll the dice!* If the sheet opens without forcing you to make a copy, simply pull down the File menu to “Make a copy”.
Want different colors? Simply select the desired cells and use the “Fill color” tool in the tool bar!
In the comments area below, please post ideas for using this in (or out) of the classroom.
