Tried it Tuesday - QR Codes

So now that I have access to a full cart of iPads for about half of the day, I had to give one of the QR (stands for quick response, in case you were wondering like I was) code activities a shot.

My students LOVED it!  About half of my students will need another day or two to finish their research posters and the other half are done.  So I sent them on a hunt for 24 task cards with QR codes that I made the night before.  They had to determine the part of speech of the underlined word.  Very simple since we'd never done it before.  They got it right away and I sort of want to make another one to put up for tomorrow on another topic for those that were able to complete this one.  I love that they were getting instant feedback on their answers.  I could hear them checking their responses and talking about the correct answers.

Our iPads have the app called "scan" on them and it did the job just fine.  I made the codes here:  It was really easy.

I made these simple task cards last night.  There are 24 sentences.  Students need to identify the part of speech for the underlined word - noun, verb, adjective, adverb, preposition, or pronoun.  Feel free to use them.  Nothing directions, cover sheet, or answer key...I wanted to make sure they worked first and maybe I'll dress them up later!  Click here to access the Google doc.

I found a QR linky party too!  Check it out below.
