How to format and install OSX on new SSD without internet


I installed a SSD in my 2010 Macbook pro.

I put the old hard drive in in an external case and the mac booted from there when turned on.

Disk Utility is up on the screen. I am unclear on how to proceed.  I need to format the new SSD and I want to copy OSX from the old hard drive to the new drive so that the mac boots from the new drive.

I do not want to use the internet on the 2010 computer that I am working on (it hasn’t been used for years (bad battery that i recently replaced)  and  i just want a dedicated word processing machine.  I hoped that it would be possible to just copy over the OSX and contents of old drive through Disk Utility.
