QR Scavenger Hunt

QR Scavenger Hunt

2 Stripes

QR Scavenger Hunts are just what they sound like – scavenger hunts that use QR codes!  They can be used to review content, or to introduce students to a new topic, all while getting students up and moving, collaborating with others, etc.


First, you will need to decide what you want students to access with their codes.  Will it be a video?  A question on a Google Doc?  A picture?  A slide presentation?  Copy the links to the resources you want students to access and create your QR codes.  Consider using Bit.Ly to create your QR codes! Provide students with a clue about where the next QR code is located.

Here are some examples of QR Code Scavenger Hunts:

Lower Elementary Producers & Consumers         Lower Elementary 100 Day

Upper Elementary Angles                Upper Elementary Geographical Features

Middle School / Junior High Solar System     Energy Transformation

High School Chemistry      Algebra
