Go QR ME is a super easy and awesome free site which lets you make your own QR codes. Simply type in the URL of somewhere you want your kids to go….a youtube video, starfall, math game, etc. It will create a code. You download and save that code and then use it as you would a picture to put it into a document and print!
All you need is a QR code scanner app (which if free) on your Ipad or iphone. Kids open the app, move it over the QR code and PRESTO! It zips them off to whatever webpage you want them to go to! Magic!!!
I created a quick little scavenger hunt for my kids to go on to test out their new QR codes. They worked with a partner. One held the Ipad, while the other wrote down the secret mystery word that popped up when you scanned the QR code! They had to go visit 6 QR codes and write down the mystery words in order to create a mystery sentence! ( I posted 6 separate documents on google docs that had 1 word each on them. I then used the URLs for the google docs to create 6 different QR codes. 1 for each mystery word.) Have I lost you yet? Seriously it’s so easy!! Stay with me!
We have been working on following the rules even if nobody is watching. lol. Tough job to do when you are 6. So our secret sentence was about them taking responsibility for how their day would turn out!
If you have a QR scanner on your iphone or ipad…see if you can figure out my mystery sentence!
Remember you need to scan them in order!
