Complex & Simple Learning Activity
8th Grade Georgia History (Getting to Know You)
Complex Activity (Getting to Know You)
1) Pick maybe 20 or so Georgia natives. Go to a QR generator I used (http://qrcode.kaywa.com/) or https://www.the-qrcode-generator.com/) Getting it set up is super easy! when the students take scan the QR code it immediately takes them to the website you want them to see. The idea is for them to be taken to a biography of a Georgian and they will be in charge of their own learning.
2) Create an activity page for them to do and gets them to actually read the biographies and answer a question about the person. You can make the questions as complex or simple.
3) To get the students started have them download the free QR scanner. It is available to both iPhones and Android. If you are worried that not every student has a phone then divide the students up so every group has a phone to use. This activity is also not limited to phones because the QR scanner works on iPods or iPads.
4) Leave about 10 minutes left in class so students have enough time to finish the bell ringer. The students should be busy scanning, reading, and filling out their activity page.
