Students learn about some of the key players during World War I (World War 1) by going on a scavenger hunt. Scatter the 22 statements around your room and students use QR Code Readers to find out Who Am I? Students fill out a handout with the answers and complete a graphic organizer.

No QR Code Readers in your classroom? No problem! A non-QR code version is included as well as answer keys for the handout and graphic organizer.

Note: The QR codes were designed for students to use a QR code reader app to reveal the person's name. 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 name (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.
