|Making the QR Codes with riddles and the final prizes.|
The students truly enjoy this activity and it's pretty simple to set up.
Here is what you will need:
|My clues - each leads to a different teacher |
and the final to the Principal
- 6 plastic colored eggs in 4-5 different colors (depending on how many groups you want. I usually do groups of 4 or 5 kids)
- Letters to put in the eggs which will spell out the final location of the prize when unscrambled.
- 7 different riddles - the last one should lead them to the prize.
- 7 QR Codes (I color code mine) that when scanned give the students the riddle
- 7 different puzzles or worksheets that need to be completed accurately
- Prizes for the winners (I do class cash, free homework pass, and fun pencils. Depending on the place the group comes in, it gets less and less for each one)
- I do 4-5 new QR Codes that when scanned tell the group what their prize is. So one code is for 1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place and so on.
|QR Codes for the riddles|
I used them for three of my puzzles and the students would solve four at a time. They are challenging but fun! For the other activities I would usually do an unscramble of sorts, a brain puzzle, and a math worksheet.
Leave me a comment if you give this a try. I would love to hear how you adapted it for your classroom.
