I'm having a project in Visual Basic class about a dice game. However, I don't know where could I get the animated dice, so, if you know any useful websites, plz share. Thanks

I would need to do a simple web search for appropriate images. Make sure any that you use are not copyright protected. As an alternative, you could build your own graphics using graphics editing software, such as Paint for Windows.
Best wishes for success on your project.

While it's important to honor the copyright of peoples pictures on the web, there are numerous places where you can find free images available for public use. A Google search like "dice images free" reveals many options.
Unless you're up for a challenge, I would recommend not trying to do a physical animation of bouncing 3d dice on a table as a first project. Many games that need to "animate" dice use a simple 2d trick like switching between images of different dice and stopping on the randomly selected one. Again, Google is your friend here. "visual basic dice animation" will yield several useful pieces of information.
