3 different colors of cardstock (can be laminated after photocopying),
Make game cards in advance. Students work in pairs. Each student
gets a key. Each pair gets one set of disease ID cards and
one set of game cards. (Note: The book says to photocopy the
game cards onto 2 different colors so each person in the group
has his own set and two games are played simultaneously. I
think it is better to play the game one side at a time, and
use only one set of cards, then switch.)
