  1. Open Webpage: education.byu.edu/teclab/eled/word_content.html
  2. Replicate the example
  3. When you are finished, save as “"science_flyer.doc”"
  4. Upload Word document to Google Drive
  5. Convert to Google Doc (The formatting will have changed significantly from what you had in the Word document. This is normal.)

  • Page in landscape orientation
