PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Many classes now have access to iPads and other devices that will allow the students to use QR scanners during centers or even independent work time.

I have created a set of mysteries where the students can work on their main idea and supporting detail skills. This activity can be done with a QR scanner or without one. If you do not want to use the QR scanner, just pass the mystery cards out to the students or have them available in the center. The students can just read the cards and fill in the task sheet.

To use the QR scanner, have the cards with QR codes available in the center or during the activity. The students will scan a card and the mystery will pop up on their screen! They can read the mystery then fill in the task sheet.

(QR Reader) is the app I use as my scanner and I love it! :)

After the students are completely finished, you can give them the final "answer" QR code and they can scan it to check their answers!

I love when students can be independent but still learning and having fun! These are a great way to integrate technology and get your students familiar with using these devices!

8 Fiction and 8 Informational Mysteries are included!

NOTE: These are not actual mysteries! :) These are just called mysteries because the students have to determine the main idea and supporting details at the end of the text!

You will love the low prep of this activity! Enjoy!

Special Note: The QR codes in the preview do not actually work. They will send you to my shop. I did this to protect my product while still being able to show you the look of the product.

PLEASE READ BEFORE PURCHASING:
The QR Codes on these cards are made with shortened QR links. PLEASE be certain your district allows shortened links or you can gain temporary access to shortened links if they are blocked. Discuss this with your technology person before purchasing! Thank you!


To see the complete sets, check out my Inference Mysteries QR Code Activity for 3rd and 4th grade and my Inference Mysteries QR Code Activity for 5th and 6th grade!

Or my Main Idea QR Code Activity for 3rd and 4th grade! These are great for practicing inferencing skills while integrating technology!
