How to Convert a PDF into an editable Worksheet using Google Slides

How to Convert a PDF into an editable Worksheet using Google Slides.

Sometimes we receive worksheets in PDF from our daughter’s teachers for her to work on. Our printer doesn’t work very well, and I know some of the families don’t have a printer at home, so in order to make the PDF editable for her and her classmates to complete using a computer, I use Google Slides..

Convert your PDF to JPEG or PNG, I’m a Windows user so I’ve used the snipping tool that comes with it (you can use any screen capture tool).

Then open a blank Google Slides file. Go to File > Page Setup, select Custom and set its dimensions to 7.5 x 10 inches.

After that, go to Slide > Edit Master and paste the screen capture of your PDF. Resize it to fit your slide.

Once done, you can insert text boxes for your students to complete the worksheet.

And as Tanya says, you can color the text boxes so that students know where to type.

ATTENTION GOOGLE SLIDES USERS: PLEASE, DO NOT REQUEST FOR ACCESS. If you are prompted to “Request for access·” (sometimes it happens when you are logged in more than one Google account or when you are logged in a Google for Education account and your IT Admin has blocked the access), you can try again by logging in a personal Gmail account, and signing out of all the other accounts.

The other workaround is for you to download the pptx file, upload it to your Google Drive, and open it as Google Slides.
