Because I am in and out of many different classrooms and work with a wide range of grades, access to digital devices varies greatly from room to room and grade to grade. I wanted to share with you today how I used a QR code scavenger hunt in a third grade classroom where the kids have access to only two digital devices with a QR code reader (tablets, iPads, iPods, smartphones etc).
We set the scavenger hunt up around the classroom, demonstrated how to use it and made it into a math station where kids could go during station time or after completing other work. Here are a few pictures and a few things we learned about setting it up this way.
|Our first lesson was to have everything you need in one spot. Using my folder organization system, all I needed to do was put this folder in a math station tub and we were set. Everything needed is inside. This class had been working with fluency with double digit subtraction so we did this scavenger hunt.|

|We also used magnets to attach some of the cards to the large heater. This was a great way to make use of a very un-used space.|
