This activity consists of a series of questions about
Each clue describes the following :
1-Thanksgiving 2- Macy’s Parade 3- NFL football
4- Squanto 5- The Mayflower 6- The Wampanoag Tribe
7- Pilgrims 8- Presidential Pardon 9-Turkey
The QR codes are linked to non-fiction articles or short Youtube videos
(run through Safeshare). This is a great way to connect literature to
History/holiday topics while incorporating technology. This activity
Requires the students to read the clues and make an inference.
They will then scan the QR code and read the article to pull
Out 2 more interesting facts about each topic. This is a wonderful
Way to promote CLOSE reading. This would be great to use
During Daily 5 or center time or can be used as a
Homework assignment. Make sure that you have a QR code scanner
That brings you directly to the URL. The QR code for iPad (free)
Works great. There are also multiple apps available both in the iTunes App Store or Google Play store.
Please make sure that if your codes are not working at school that you check with your IT person to make sure that Youtube is not blocked at your school.
Please make sure to leave me feedback!
