QR Code Library Scavenger Hunt

Our 3rd - 5th graders at DC Elementary worked on a library scavenger hunt as a back-to-school activity. In partner groups, students moved about the library following the directions on their handouts. They had to locate a QR code, read the prompt and question, scan the code, and then record their findings on the document.

Here are some sample questions from the handout:

When students found the QR code, they used iPads to scan it and find the answers to their questions. Two of the codes appear below:

Students didn't quite complete all 10 questions, but they now know how to scan QR codes and read for the information.

  1. I don't know of anyone who really uses QR codes anymore. Is that something your school district does or? I know of a few adults who use those on self-guided tours on vacations, but not much otherwise....
