Until now, a large PDF has been a great way to share resources since teachers were able to access everything in one large file and print! However, in this new world of distance learning, I’m sure that you DO NOT want to share the entire packet – answer key and all – with students! J
The good news is that splitting up a PDF into smaller chunks is not a difficult thing to do! In fact, this gives you as the teacher the flexibility to make “packets” with the papers of your choice to share with students.
Open the PDF. Here you will see a list of multiple pages that are included in the PDF.
Decide which pages you would like to put together in your “new PDF.”
Go to Print (yes – even thought you are saving as a PDF). Select the option that says “Print to PDF”.
There are several “page” options – all, current page, and page range.
Most likely, you will want to select “page range” – this will allow you to customize any combination of pages. For example 1,2,3,7.
Select Print. Then you will have the option to save your “packet”. Be sure to rename this packet in a way that will reflect the difference from the original packet. Ex: Chemistry student practice
