In this War of 1812 timeline activity, the teacher scatters and hides the 28 event cards around the room. The events begin in 1803 with the Napoleonic Wars and end with the 1815 Treaty of Ghent. Students use QR readers to find the dates of the events and record the information on a handout. Then, students place the events in the correct chronological order on a timeline.

No QR readers? No problem! A non-QR version is also included!

Note: The QR codes were designed for students to use a QR code reader app to reveal the event’s date. If students do not have a QR code reader app, they may use the camera on their device. However, the camera reads the QR code differently. It assumes they want an Internet search for the date (there is no way to control what sites the device pulls into the search). So, if students want to use their camera, they will need to first put their device in airplane mode or turn off the WiFi connection.
