Drag & Drop Accessibility

Hi all,

I'm helping to make a canvas course accessible. Currently, we have this drag & drop design (image pasted below) that works great for sighted users, but it does not work for keyboard-only users who depend on screen readers. Does anyone have any suggestions to make this activity accessible?  

 

One idea I had was to create a form that is invisible to sighted users. Screen readers would hear the prompt, then have the option to check a box for each activity they would be interested in doing.  However, it seems Canvas does not allow forms (it strips the forms and checkboxes out of my HTML after I save it). 

 

 

Thank you to anyone who is able to help!
