The Great Holiday Rescue QR Code Activity is the perfect way to engage students with learning, technology, group work, and a mini room transformation for winter holidays in the US and around the world should you choose to decorate. This activity allows students to add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals with 15 practice problems while learning about and experiencing different holiday traditions.
Holidays included are: Sinterklaas, Hanukkah, La Befana, Las Posadas, Kwanzaa, Diwali, Lunar New Year, Christmas, St. Lucia’s Day, and Three Kings Day.
Print the problems and laminate. Students will need a device that can read QR codes (cell phone, iPad, tablet, laptop/desktop with a camera, etc.).
The activity is designed for students to work in small groups but students can work individually or in partners. Print the problems for each group (I had 5 groups) or hang around the room. I highly recommend that students/groups start at different spots.
Students will solve the problem and record work on the recording sheet. Using the camera on the device, students will scan the QR code card near their answer that will alert them whether they are correct or not. I checked that students had work shown before scanning the QR code.
If students are incorrect, they will fix their work and answer then scan the QR code by the correct answer. Students will learn about 10 different winter holidays celebrated in the US and around the world, and participate in an activity to commemorate that holiday.
See the preview for more details, including supplies needed! Some tasks are timed so I let students use the timer on their device.
Happy teaching and happy holidays!
