During their reading classes, Ms. Moore and Mrs. Fight decided to teach students about different textbook features using a QR scavenger hunt. They developed a set of questions that were embedded into a QR code using a QR Scavenger Hunt creator (http://www.classtools.net/QR/) that allows you to put text into a QR code instead of websites.
The QR codes were hidden in various locations around the room by the teachers and a few student helpers. Students then had to locate not only the QR code to get the questions, but also the answers within their textbooks and record them on a graphic organizer! Questions covered various features, like table of contents and glossaries, that would help students understand and better navigate their textbooks (scan the image to the right for an example). Students had a blast trying to find not only the answers to the quiz, but the QR codes themselves. What a fantastic way to get students up and moving with technology!
Reflecting with SAMR
The district has a new QR reader on all of the student iPads this year, I-Nigma. Just look for the image to the left on student devices and you've found it!
