  • Download the QR codes for each clue.
  • Print and laminate the QR codes and attach each code to the posters with Velcro Dots or Blu-Tack.
  • Record the answers in the speech bubbles with a removable marker. Alternatively, print out the answers on white paper then laminate them and attach with Velcro Dots or Blu-tack.
  • Randomly place the posters around the classroom.
  • In small groups, students use a QR code scanning app on a tablet to scan each QR code poster to reveal a clue to find the corresponding answer and write their answers on the recording worksheet.

Could this be uploaded as a word document so we can insert our QR codes digitally rather than printing, cutting, sticking, then laminating them on?

This is awesome. I saw the QR code activity for 3 digit numbers but I teach preps so it was too tricky. This template will be great to introduce QR codes to my kids and make learning fun. Thank you
