Students will scan the QR codes with their phones to access primary documents online. They will work through the QR Quest worksheet and answer specific questions about the primary documents.
Documents include Emancipation Proclamation, Gettysburg Address, battles of the Civil War, communications between Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee, letter from Ulysses S. Grant to Abraham Lincoln, letter from Robert E. Lee to Jefferson Davis, and South Carolina's secession document.
Tip: I also printed hard copies of the documents to give to students who did not have a device to scan the codes.
For lower ability students, you can use hard copies of the documents and highlight the sections of each document in which they'll find the answers.
