Teaching the process of Mitosis is foundational to every life science class during your Cell Cycle Unit. Transform your lesson on the mitosis and increase student engagement with a fun and interactive QR Code Scavenger Hunt. At the end of this activity, your students will have shown you that they can differentiate and describe the the four phases of mitosis.

Checking student understanding made easy with this interactive QR code scavenger hunt. As students review the functions of the different parts of the Central Nervous System, they will be provided automatic feedback on whether they are correct or incorrect, making this a resource that is all about giving students ownership of their learning.

How is it designed?

Students will move around the room to answer questions and search for the correct answer at the top of a different QR Code page. I have designed this activity in a loop so that if students get an answer correct they will be led to the next number in the sequence (for example, number 4 leads to number 5 and so on...). In this way, students will be able to know instantly whether or not they have answered the question correctly, providing INSTANT FEEDBACK!

What concepts are covered?

  • Putting the phases in the correct order
  • Knowing what occurs during each phase
  • Difference between chromosomes and chromatin
  • The term centromere

What's Included?

  • 12 QR codes each with a different question embedded for students to answer
  • Student handout (two per page to conserve paper)
  • Answer key

This activity is always so much fun in my classroom and brings engagement as we review the process of mitosis.
