My goal was to give my students a taste of what it was like for early scientists doing atomic research without being able to see the atoms they were theorizing about. Each group received a recording sheet where they listed their hypothesis and their reasoning. I've never got around to making the game, though...
My husband helped me to open the film canisters and pack them with goodies to be hypothesized about. Maybe I'll have to add it to my summer project list! I purchased these foam cubes from Dollar Tree a few years ago to turn into dice.

The post-it notes didn't stick to the film canisters very well, so I ended up taping them on.
Even with the help of their cell phone lights, they did still have to do some hypothesizing.
The light gave them an idea of what was inside, but they had to apply what they were seeing to previous experiences to write their hypothesis.
After all of the groups were finished, we did a reveal.
We filled 10 different canisters for this activity. I only used a few, so I just have them sitting in my foam dice tub doing nothing.
