Each activity is presented as a standalone activity in order to best differentiate for your classes OR you can print off the booklet which uses activties where some follow on from each other.

The booklet does have every activity in which may not be suitable for some classes. If this is the case print off the pdf BUT choose which pages you want to print.

Save for later
