So, last year, I introduced a QR Code Hunt for my 4th and 5th graders to re-orient themselves with the library. They watched videos from Animoto and Powtoons (there's also a YouTube version as well) and answered questions. It was such a big hit, it's going to be repeated this year!
For my 2nd and 3rd graders, I decided to do a Survivor type activity that I saw suggested in a book, but after looking through my picture books for a great "survivor" type story, I realized I didn't have any! So, using Old Crump by Laurie Lawlor, which tells the true story of a trip out west in the covered wagon days (Old Crump being an ox), my "survivor" turned into a western/desert theme!
You can also check out my updated QR Code Hunt (alternate version without YouTube) where I fixed a few flaws in the videos and added some hints as well to some of the harder questions!
