This activity consists of a series of questions about Christmas.

11-Salvation Army Kettle Campaign 12-Reindeer 13-North Pole

The QR codes are linked to non-fiction Wikipedia articles. This is a great way to connect literature to History/holiday topics while incorporating technology. This activity requires the students to read the clues and make an inference. They will then scan the QR code and read the article to pull out 2 more interesting facts about each topic. This is a wonderful way to promote CLOSE reading.This would be great to use during Daily 5 or center time or can be used as a homework assignment. These are designed to be used in public school so they are In no way connected to any religion. (That’s why Santa is not included) Make sure that you have a QR code scanner that brings you directly to the URL. The QR code for iPad (free) works great. There are also multiple apps available both in the iTunes App Store or Google Play store.
Please make sure that if your codes are not working at school that you check with your IT person to make sure that Youtube is not blocked at your school.
Please make sure to leave me feedback:)
