I created this “QR Quest” as a twist on the much more familiar, web quest. In this fun, hands on, research unit- your students will become familiar with how animals are born, how they grow, and how they reproduce by following the research guide, scanning QR codes, watching videos, reading articles, and showing their knowledge. What’s great about this unit is that students are
doing all their work on their own, which helps the learning stick. Throughout the unit, students “Show what they know” after learning about the life cycle of an animal in a number of different ways. I’ve left this part open because I know resources vary from classroom to classroom. At the end of the unit, your students take their knowledge and show their expertize by completing an
Expert Project. I’ve included sample project ideas but you could do anything. This allows students to be creative and show their learning in a way that is fun and exciting to them. It is also a way to build important communication and presentation skills. I hope you will find this unit a fun, exciting twist to your normal classroom routines and that they learn more than you could have ever
imagined about the life cycles of animals.
