Famous Americans QR Quests
20 Pages for your students to work on research, technology, reading, writing, and Social Studies!!
INTEGRATION OF MULTIPLE SUBJECTS :)
**I created these activities for differentiation and to meet me gifted students' needs. Although, I feel that all students could use this activity and gain from it.
Each famous American has 2 activity sheets. The first sheet is made up of 4 Questions. The student(s) will use the QR Reader App to scan the QR code. They will then read the information on the given website and use that information (ask and answer) to answer the given question. On the second activity page, students will record 5 of their favorite facts about the American and create a summary (The length can be differentiated)
**Designed for students to take learning into their own hands, research the figures, learn facts about them, take notes, create a summary, and even present their information...
