Palm Pointe students enjoy bar code scavenger hunt

The eighth grade Algebra 1 Honors students at Palm Pointe Educational Research School @ Tradition were getting their chapter one test review via QR Codes.  QR Codes are the square barcodes that have more product information. QR codes were created free on line and when scanned came back to the student, on their device, with the questions the students needed for their review.  Students used the codes through a scavenger hunt activity.  Once they solved the question they had scanned, students had to find the next question with the answer they got and continue until they completed all questions on the hunt.  Students were using their own devices (cell phones, tablets and IPods) to scan the barcodes with free apps available.  Student were paired up to make sure there were enough devices to go around, this pairing also provided them a buddy to help if they needed support with a question.  Students enjoyed the scavenger hunt and were engaged in their learning for the entire class period.
