How to use this packet for distance learning:

If your students are on Google Classroom, simply use the included link to “make a copy” for your Google Drive.

Before sending the copy out to students, check to make sure you want all the pages included (the first 2 pages are directions for teachers, so you’ll want to remove those from student copies).
