I created a total of 39 questions (this is the number I needed for my hidden picture of the number 100) Each Question was a new post on my Weebly blog that I created specifically for QR code questions. Below is a sample question.
Next, I had to create a unique QR code that would direct my students to each of the 39 posts. I used a Chrome app called QR Code Generator. This is not the only site for creating QR Codes. I know Kaywa is also popular.
The last step was to create a grid that students would color in to reveal a hidden number 100. I used Word to insert a table and add the row headers and cell labels.
My students worked in groups of four since I have 20 students and only 5 iPads. They used the Qrafter app to scan each QR code. I set this app up to automatically redirect to the website once the code was scanned. This made it very simple for my first graders.
Once a code was scanned, a question would be displayed. All of my questions were geared towards math skills we had learned to date this school year. Students could choose from four answers. They would choose their answer and use the grid code next to it. The grid code next to their answer told them which box to color on their hidden picture template.
**The question below helps clarify. The correct answer is 60 so students would use the code (B7) to color in B7 on their hidden picture template. If all answers were correct, a number 100 was displayed on their grid.
The packet that contains the QR Codes and hidden picture template can be found on Teachers Pay Teachers. Best part....it's FREE!!
