Dice Activity
Step 1: Roll five dice all at once. Note the faces that come up without looking at the wordlist yet. 
Step 2: Your results might look like this reading left to right: 4, 3, 4, 6, 3. Write those numbers down.
Step 3: Open EFF's Long Wordlist [.txt] to find the corresponding word next to 43463.
Step 4: You will find the word "panoramic." This is the first word in your passphrase, so write it down.
Step 5: Repeat steps 1-4 five more times to come up with a total of SIX words.
When you are done, your passphrase may look something like this:
panoramic nectar precut smith banana handclap
Step 6: Come up with your own mnemonic to remember your phrase. It might be a story, scenario, or sentence that you will be able to remember and that can remind you of the particular words you chose, in order. For example:

The panoramic view, as I tasted the nectar of a precut granny smith apple and banana, deserved a handclap.
