How to set up a checklist in Google Docs to be used and shared in your classroom in under 1:45 seconds.

 If you would like to create a checklist to be used in your classroom (or wherever), try using Google Docs. Embedded below I show you how to create a checklist that is ready to be shared with others (or printed out) in under 1 minute and 45 seconds.

When entering into your Doc, I like to go to do the following:

  •  File> page setup and change the left and right margin to 0.1
  • Double click in the header, click on options and header format (blue on right side) to 0.1
  • Insert > Table (I chose a 4x4)
  • Right click on the 1st row and column and scroll to table properties
    • change the column width (I chose 5 inches)
  • Right click again on the first row and column and choose to add a row above (this will be important to add text above the three columns on the right).
    • Make sure to click on the top line on the left and change the border color to white (same with the side border color).
  • Now add your text where needed.
  • When ready to place your checkmarks - highlight the rows you would like and then choose the checkbox icon (it may be hidden in the three dots).
Embedded below is a 2 minute and 3 second YouTube tutorial.

Take care,
