Do your students struggle finding information on famous historical figures? Do you have technology in your classroom that could help, but aren't sure how to get all of your students to access the web sites they need?
This QR Code activity was designed as a supplemental resource to help students explain the key individuals of the Civil War. This activity is aligned with the 5th grade Social Studies Georgia Performance Standard, SS5H1. This activity requires students to scan the QR codes to research and gather information from 4 websites and watch 4 videos for each historical figure. While researching, students will record biographical facts and information about each historical figure. After collecting information, students will write a biography report for each of the following historical figures:
Robert E Lee
Ulysses S. Grant
Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson
