Paper-free ways to present some of the activities, like the mysteries and writing races, are to show them on your screen or pop them on your password protected Google Classroom homework site. The answers to the brainteaser stories have been placed on separate pages to avoid spoilers that would ruin the fun of being a detective.
Some of the activities, such as the word search, scrambled words, and number to words activities, need to be photocopied. To promote classroom spirit and to save on photocopying, these fun tasks could be completed in pairs. Again, to reduce the required amount of photocopying, you could put all of the answer keys up on your screen. The writing races could be completed on scraps of paper from the recycling bin.
The Internet is not required for any of the games.
