Yesterday was the first day our media center was open for the 2012-2013 school year! All four of the fifth grade classes came in for their first library visit of the year. To remind our students of our library rules and procedures, I created a QR code scavenger hunt. I developed 12 questions to teach/remind students about media center resources and where materials are located. I created the QR codes using Kaywa. We are fortunate enough to have 20 iPads in our media center with the Scan bar code/QR code reader app. Students worked in pairs. One student wrote answers on the scavenger hunt sheet and the other scanned the QR code. Then they traded so each student had the opportunity to scan six codes. My students were so engaged in this activity! Even students who are regularly unmotivated were cooperative, careful with the iPad, and they even completed the entire scavenger hunt!
