Integrate technology into St. Patrick's Day with QR codes! We all know how crazy kids can be around holidays, so I created this activity to teach my students a little bit about St. Patrick's Day history and traditions in an original and engaging way. Fair warning- not all of the links are educational (one QR code links to St. Patrick’s Day jokes and another links how to draw a leprechaun), but we all need to have a little fun sometimes!
How I use this activity in my classroom:
- First, I laminate and cut up the cards. Then I put them on a book ring so students can flip through them easily.
-Next, I pair up students. Each pair gets a set of cards and a device with a QR scanner (iPod, iPad, tablet, etc.)
-Then each pair finds a comfortable spot in the classroom and gets to work!
When everyone is finished, we come together as a class to go over the answers and talk about the positives and the challenges of the activity. We also talk about St. Patrick’s Day traditions in our own families.
An answer sheet with key is included.
