Of course, you will need to make multiple copies of the worksheet for your students. Consider printing one copy of the worksheet at home or in your classroom, and using the color copier in your school office, if one is available.
Make the experience fun by turning the lesson into a teaching game. For example, students could roll dice to determine what activities they need to do or complete a puzzle. Reward students with points for discovering the correct answers or locating mistakes on the assignment.
