You can choose to attach a document, assign from Drive, give a YouTube video to watch, or a link for students to follow.

In this example, I assigned a worksheet from my Drive account. I have the option of simply allowing students to view the document or edit the document. I want them each to do their own worksheet, so I chose Make a copy for each student.
