They must scan the QR Code to find the answer for each corresponding question on their recording sheets. Students make an educated guess about the possible answer prior to scanning.

→ Early finishers who complete the Qr Code Hunt can design their posters. They write 2-3 facts on a template of their choice.

EVIDENCE OF LEARNING
Wrap-up the activity by getting students together and asking them to share the facts they found the most interesting. They may refer to their recording sheets and posters.

† You may break-up the activity and do cards (1-17) or (18-32) depending upon time available. Copy recording sheets accordingly.

†† These cards will assess student’s prior knowledge or alternatively pique their interest for them to want to scan the code to reveal the answer. Some cards also have picture clues (without giving away too much) to set up students for success.

ONLINE SECURITY
Once a QR code is scanned, students are not directed to a website but rather to a text only link. If the QR Code Reader app attempts to display the answer with a web browser, choose the option of view in ‘plain text’ in settings/preferences.
