How Stuff Works 2:
Children are naturally curious and love finding out about things. These QR codes link to videos from the How Stuff Works youtube site. Children will need an iPad/iPhone with a QR code reader to scan the code and watch the video. The videos very simply explain how and why various things work or happen.
I use these cards mainly during silent reading time or free time. These cards have been a real hit with my class. They are fascinated by topics, such as the 'Porta Potties', 'Farts' and '4D Printing'.
These QR code cards can also be used for a unit on explanation writing.
This product contains five pages of QR codes, an explanation writing template, checklist and rubric.
