Get your students up and moving with this fun QR Code Scavenger Hunt! This activity is perfect for any business course teaching about countries around the world. This file includes 20 QR Codes that when scanned link to a plain text question. Students will then locate the answer to the question on another QR Code clue. See preview for example. Questions touch on a variety of topics such as: country population, GDP per capita, stock markets, non-verbal communication through gestures, customs, economic systems, major companies, trade agreements, currency, surrounding countries, major exports, etc. This activity is a great way to start or end an International Business unit and get students thinking and collaborating. Students can work individually or in small groups based on your discretion. This activity is ready to print and go.
Included in the PDF:
-Instructions (see below)

-Teacher Answer Reporting Sheet Key
-20 QR Codes with Questions and Answers
-Print each of the following slides and an answer recording sheet for each student.
-Cut each slide in half so there is one QR code per sheet of paper.
-Mix up the cards so that they are NOT in the same order you printed them. Hang the QR codes around the classroom, a hallway, or the school. Allow more time for a larger area.
-Decide if you would like students to complete the activity individually, with a partner, or a small group. Assign partner(s) if desired.
-Ensure students have access to a QR code reader on a device. This can be completed with a phone, tablet, or laptop, as long as it has a camera.
-Instruct students that they can start at any QR code. They will scan the code to read the question. They will then look around the room, hallway, or school to find the answer to the question on another card. Be sure to tell students that the answer on the card should match the previous question and it is not the answer to the question on the same card. Students will move around the room, hallway, or school, recording each answer on the recording sheet. The first group to record all answers correctly is the winner.
