A Student’s Guide to Using Google Sheets

Make Columns Wider

In between the column indicators (letters) you can click and hold down to drag the width of the column.

Turn on Word Wrap

You want all of the text to fit into a single cell. Click on the cell (or range of cells) and use the word wrap icon in the toolbar.

Make a Big Answer Box

Merging multiple cells together can create a large answer box. Highlight the range of cells you wish to merge and use the merge icon in the toolbar. Tip: change the font size, set word wrap, align vertically, and use the paint can on your large answer box.

Create a New Sheet

Add multiple sheets to your spreadsheet workbook by clicking on the plus icon in the bottom left. Double click on the tab to rename the sheet name.
