QR Scavenger Hunt
It’s that time of year when I am antsy and so are the kids. I needed to come up with a different way to review for our unit test that is tomorrow. To get students up and moving and using the new ipads I decided to create a QR scavenger hunt. Since our unit was mainly over geometry topics (Filling and Wrapping CMP 3) I needed to find a way to create QR codes that had a picture.
So, I created a new Google website. Each page on the website is a review question. I then used goo.gl URL shortener which gave me a QR code for each question. I then copied each code into a word document and printed off the QR codes. Then is morning I put the codes up around the building.
When students came into class they were told that they could work in a pairs or alone. All they needed were their math binders to look back in, a sheet of paper numbered 1-13, a calculator, pencil and an ipad. They were then off working.
While students were working I was roaming around answering questions or asking guiding questions of students as they worked. The group that had the most questions correct earned a piece of candy.
This was quick and easy. If you want to learn how to create a QR scavenger hunt and will be at TMC16 then you will want to join Kathryn Freed and I in the morning session on technology.
