Task Cards for Early Finishers or Center Activities
Have students record their answers on the provided page (or just have students number a blank page from 1-24). Students answer the question on each card on their paper. After a student has answered all the cards, they can go back and scan each card with a QR Reader on a mobile device (there are several free ones available). Alternatively, you can have students begin checking the questions that they finished at a specified time. If you run out of time for students to scan QR codes or don't have access to a device with a QR reader, a paper answer key is provided.
To play Scoot, you place a card on each child’s desk. Each child should answer their card on the correct location on their recording sheet. Make sure students look at the card number to see where to begin on their recording sheet. Then when you give a signal all students move to the next desk and record the next answer. Check answers at the end as a class.
A Note on QR Readers
QR readers are very easy to use. Just go to the app store for your SMARTphone or tablet. You can even download a reader onto the newer iPod Touches. My QR reader will even read text codes (like the ones on these task cards) without an internet connection. You just point the camera on your device at the code, like you are taking a picture. Press the scan button on your QR reader app. The answer will appear on the device.
