tech tip

Microsoft Office 2013

Create and Edit PDF Files

Office has toyed around with PDF files in past versions, but this time around Microsoft got serious. In the past you could save as PDF, but now you can actually edit. The new Word 2013 allows you to open PDF files, edit them there, and then save them as either DocX files or PDFs.

To save a file as PDF simply click “Save” and then use the dropdown menu to choose the .PDF option. It is one of the many file types you can choose here.

  • Bunny Trouble Breakout

    Mrs. Grace's 3rd grade class worked to break Ralph the bunny out of the Breakout box.  Students participated in a student-centered,  inquiry based lesson and  worked in teams to problem solve and think critically as they solved clues to unlock a series of locks. Students covered skills such as expanded notation, vocabulary, sorting, completing puzzles, and research using QR codes as well as the internet.

  • CCE Owl Pellet Investigation

    Mrs. Abby Morse's 3rd grade students of Champ Cooper Elementary connected with the Discovery Center of Springfield through a video conference to learn about animal habits, adaptations of predators and prey, and population control through food webs. Students were able to examine different animal skulls and identify the three different types of teeth to determine the animals role in an ecosystem. Finally, students dissected owl pellets and used the bones found to determine the type of prey.
