Downloading and installing Acrobat Reader will take a little time and effort but the benefit is that the worksheets will print and photocopy beautifully and the artwork will look crisp. If you've ever tried to print web pages with pictures you'll appreciate the difference.

If Adobe Acrobat Reader is already installed on your computer, the pages will open automatically as they download. You'll still need to save these files to your hard drive (or a floppy disk) by choosing File: Save as from the Adobe Acrobat Reader menu.
