If you have the time and resources, obviously printing or pasting the materials onto card or laminating them would help preserve their shelflife. However, this isn't absolutely necessary I have sets of games materials printed only onto paper that have done their dury in r.vorkshops all over the world and aren't much the worse for wear after several years.X/hat is more important is providing a system to prevent the materials getting lost and disorganised. If you have a class set of ten packs of cards, for example, it is worth putting each pack into an envelope ciearly labelled with the name of the game and the number of cards. It is then the students' responsibility ro collect up all the cards at the end of the game, check that they are all there, put them back into the envelope and hand them back to you. If two packs of cards are required for a game, keep them in two smaller envelopes inside the big one, and get the students to sort them back into their respecrive envelopes at the end of the game.Finally, if you have no access to copying facilities at all, it is possible, though time-consuming, to make home-made versions of the materials b5r getting the students to work with vou to draw and write the cards. 6 7. and one ofthe anrtclE cARDS from her hand, e.g. E Rrticles in general'Camels haxe humps to store food.','A dog is man's best statements;t'riend.','Children shottld be seenand not heard.', she candiscard both cards.
