Book Fair QR Code Scavenger Hunt
Help students stay engaged during the book fair! Using digital devices and a QR code scanner app, students can complete a scavenger hunt to learn about different areas of the book fair, window shop available items for purchasing, and learn about how much different items cost. This activity will keep students engaged and offer purposeful learning during a busy time in the media center! Your need for classroom management will be fulfilled through the students' active learning.
In this activity, students will first download a QR code scanner app. Then, they will scan the QR code marked "Start." It will give them a clue to the next QR code and a question to answer on their answer sheet. After they answer that question, they scan the next QR code and are prompted to find a new area of the book fair. The scavenger hunt continues in this way until the students are done. The scavenger hunt asks generic questions to that any elementary school book fair may use it, regardless of their setting or company used.
This packet is 11 pages along and includes:
-1 cover page
-1 directions page
-1 key to the QR codes, the questions that they prompt & where to hang them in the book fair
-1 answer sheet for students to use
-7 QR codes for the scavenger hunt
Book Fair Presentation for Primary Students
How do you explain a book fair to students who have never seen one? This PDF presentation explains to preschool and kindergarten students what a book fair is by comparing it to a bookstore. After participating in a think-pair-share about bookstores, students will learn basic facts about book fairs. These facts (types of books, bringing money to pay for books) are applicable to any school book fair. Included in this presentation are three math problems to help students understand the concept of having enough money to purchase books at the book fair. These math problems also include a discussion prompt to help guide students to think about appropriate reactions when not having enough money or being able to purchase something. At the conclusion of the presentation is a slide to transition to previewing books at the upcoming book fair.
This presentation in PDF format contains 11 slides:
-1 cover slide
-2 discussion slides
-3 book fair information slides
-3 slides with math problems
-1 transition slide to previewing books
-1 credits slide
I hope these products help you have a successful bookfair in your library media center!
