Get your students to draw and translate hidden messages in each QR code. I use this product with Realidades I Chapter 3A.
1. Students will need to download an app called “QR reader” to their device.
2. Print the QR codes, and spread/ tape across the room. Put them in low or high places. It gives the illusion of a scavenger hunt.
3. Print the template QR Code Blank Boxes from the preview tab. They will draw or translate the QR Code message in the appropriate box.
4. Use your discretion, and decide if you prefer to allow students to work in pairs. I have to allow them to work in pairs or threes, since not all of my students have smart phones.
5. The activity should last about 20-30 minutes. It depends on the size of the class.
6. Students will scan the QR code. If they message is in Spanish, they must draw it. If the message is in English, they must translate it.
Before I begin this activity, I go over a couple of details they need to remember:
• Gusta vs. Gustan
• Vocabulary list from Realidades I Chapter 3A and how to make plural nouns.
• Expectations for the drawings. (Clear drawings; specify the person and their gender; etc.)
• Indirect Object Pronouns: Me, Te, Le, Nos, Les
