Get your students up and moving with this fun QR Code Scavenger Hunt! This activity is perfect for teaching management functions and operations. This file includes 20 QR Codes that when scanned link to a plain text clue. When students scan the QR code they will be given a clue about management. They will then identify the correct answer (found on another clue). This activity is a great way to practice key concepts and get students thinking and collaborating. Students can work individually or in small groups based on your discretion. At the conclusion of the activity, 7 reflection questions are provided. I like to print the QR codes on colored paper and laminate. This way they are ready to go and can be used again each semester.
Terms covered in this activity include: leading, controlling, organizing, planning, vertical organization, horizontal organization, empowerment, motivating, scheduling, exit interview, recruiting, top-level management, middle-level management, operational managers, entry-level position, self-managed teams, orientation, and delegate.

-20 QR Codes with Clues and Answers
1)Print 1 class set of the following slides and an answer recording sheet for each student.
2) Cut each slide in half so there is one QR code per sheet of paper. Laminate for re-use.
3) 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.
4)Decide if you would like students to complete the activity individually, with a partner, or a small group. Assign partner(s) if desired.
5) Ensure students have access to a QR code reader on a device. There are several free apps that make this easy or they can use the camera of a phone, tablet, or laptop.
6) 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 clue 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.
7) Students should record the correct answer for each clue on the handout provided. The first group to record all answers correctly is the winner.
8) Close with a discussion about correct answers.
