Students can work individually or in small groups based on your discretion.

Activity Instructions:

1)Print 1 class set of the following slides and an answer recording sheet for each student.

2) Cut each slide in half so there is one QR code per sheet of paper. Laminate for re-use.

3) Mix up the cards so that they are NOT in the same order you printed them. Hang the QR codes around the classroom, a hallway, or the school. Allow more time for a larger area.

4)Decide if you would like students to complete the activity individually, with a partner, or a small group. Assign partner(s) if desired.

5) Ensure students have access to a QR code reader on a device. There are several free apps that make this easy or they can use the camera of a phone, tablet, or laptop.

6) Instruct students that they can start at any QR code. They will scan the code to read the clue. They will then look around the room, hallway, or school to find the answer to the clue on another card. Be sure to tell students that the answer on the card should match the previous clue and it is not the answer to the clue on the same card. Students will move around the room, hallway, or school, recording each answer on the recording sheet.

7) Students should record the correct answer for each clue on the handout provided. The first group to record all answers correctly is the winner.

8) Close with a discussion about correct answers.
