Get your students up and moving with this fun QR Code Scavenger Hunt! This activity is perfect for any business course teaching about leadership. This file includes 10 QR Codes that when scanned link to a plain text clue. Students will then locate the answer to the clue on another QR Code clue. See preview for example. When students scan the QR code they will be given a description of a famous business leader (list below). They will then identify the name of the leader (found on another clue), the company they are associated with, and a leadership quality that is described in the clue. This activity is a great way to start or end a leadership unit and get students thinking and collaborating. Students can work individually or in small groups based on your discretion.
Business Leaders: Mark Zuckerburg, Elon Musk, Ted Turner, John D. Rockefeller, Fred Smith, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Andrew Carnegie, Jack Welch, and Larry Page

-10 QR Codes with Clues and Answers
•Print each of the following slides and an answer recording sheet for each student.
•Cut each slide in half so there is one QR code per sheet of paper.
•Mix up the cards so that they are NOT in the same order you printed them. Hang the QR codes around the classroom, a hallway, or the school. Allow more time for a larger area.
•Decide if you would like students to complete the activity individually, with a partner, or a small group. Assign partner(s) if desired.
•Ensure students have access to a QR code reader on a device. This can be completed with a phone, tablet, or laptop, as long as it has a camera.
•Instruct students that they can start at any QR code. They will scan the code to read the clue.They will then look around the room, hallway, or school to find the answer to the clue on another card. Be sure to tell students that the answer on the card should match the previous and it is not the answer to the clue on
the same card. Students will move around the room, hallway, or school,
recording each answer on the recording sheet.
•Students should first record the business leader that corresponds with each clue, then guess the name of the company they are known for, and then identify a
leadership quality from the that they believe the individual possessed/possesses. The first group to record all answers correctly is the winner.
•Close with a discussion about correct answers and positive leadership qualities.
