QR Code School to Library Scavenger Hunt

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 12 pages | Grades: 2 - 4

A fun activity where students scan QR codes to go on a scavenger hunt around the school, ending up at the library.

Use this interactive teaching resource during book week, or even at the start of the school year as a fun school tour!

Students use a QR code scanning app on a tablet to scan each QR code poster to reveal a clue to find the next destination around the school.

To use this resource in the classroom:

  • print and laminate the set of QR posters
  • place the posters at the places mentioned at the top of each poster
  • place the students into pairs or small groups
  • provide each student with a recording worksheet
  • provide each group with a tablet where a free QR code scanning app has been installed
  • instruct the students to begin their scavenger hunt at the ‘Start here!’ poster
  • students scan the QR code to reveal a clue
  • students read the clue then work out where the next QR code poster might be
  • students record the destinations in sequential order on their worksheets.

Please note: Some free QR reading apps will add random symbols in the text. We suggest downloading either of these apps to get the best quality – QR Scanner or Lightning QR.
