User Comments:

- "Great space resource for the students and a valid reason for them to use their phones during class! Thanks!!"

- "I can't wait to share these with my students! They love this QR thing! :-)"

- "Thank you for sharing this. I'm excited to try this with my students this week. It is a great way to have them explore independently and we can then consolidate as a group!"

- "Fantastic! I love this scavenger hunt, I am changing my schedule for tomorrow's astronomy class and we are definitely doing the scavenger hunt."

- "Really awesome resource."

Here's how you implement them:

• Print the QR codes and place them around the room

• Place your students into groups

• Let them loose! They move from Location to Location as they complete their tasks. Each Task is assigned by scanning the QR code and there are 5 Tasks per Scavenger Hunt Activity.

• Have them submit their answers directly to your email via a form on my website.
