iPad QR Scavenger Hunt

19 Oct

I’ve said it before – I love using QR codes in my classroom!


There are a lot of reasons:

  • Takes students directly to a website you have chosen
  • Eliminates frustration of typing in long web addresses (perfect for students in an inclusion class, occupational therapy, etc.)
  • Saves time!

I make QR codes using free QR code generators like Qurify and distribute them to my students as a scavenger hunt. I’ll have questions ready for each website so students are focused as they conduct Internet research. You can post these QR codes around the classroom, create QR stations, or simply give them to your students with their scavenger hunt activity sheet.

Check out my lesson plan on using QR Scavenger Hunts in the classroom!

    Thanks for posting this. I continue to find value in using QR codes in a math setting. My next step is to have students actually create their own and possible make a scavenger hunt for other students in the school.
