Assigning a Google Doc as an assignment

Hey all! We are just transitioning to Chromebooks and Canvas next year. My question is, how do I assign a Google doc for a student to complete?


In the "olden days", I would upload a Word doc with questions (eg, a worksheet.) Students would download the Word doc, fill in their answers, and upload the completed version as a file. Since we are moving to Chromebooks, we don't have Word anymore. I now would like to have students access a Google Doc, complete it independently, and resubmit the completed Google Doc to me for grading. I see how students can upload a completed google doc to the teacher, but I do NOT see how a teacher can assign a "blank" Google Doc worksheet to their students in the assignment section.


Can anyone help me out? If this is impossible, what other workaround is there? Thanks!
