Websites to PDF's (Chrome Extension)

One of my favorite sites to use with students is duckster.com. It is a great site that has lots of student friendly articles (I use it mostly for the history articles). It is a free site, and as such, has a lot of distracting ads and sidebar information making it easy for students to click out of the intended article.


In order to keep students focused on the information I need them to be I use a Google Chrome extension called Print Friendly & PDF.

The extension allows you to make a downloadable PDF of the website and delete any extraneous information you don't want. This way the PDF can be shared with students via Google Classroom without sending them to a website, or it can be printed for their Social Studies or Science notebooks. It also works great if you need the information for a lesson but the website is blocked for students.

To add the extension simply follow the steps below:
