Students learn about some of the key players during World War II (World War 2) by going on a scavenger hunt. Scatter the 25 statements around your room and students use QR Code Readers to find out Who Am I? Students fill out a handout with the names of the World War II people, complete a graphic organizer, and create 5 flap books for their interactive or regular notebooks.
No QR Code Readers in your classroom? No problem! A non-QR code version is included as well as answer keys for the handout, graphic organizer, and flap books.
Note: The QR codes were designed for students to use a QR code reader app to reveal the person’s name. If students do not have a QR code reader app, they may use the camera on their device. However, the camera reads the QR code differently. It assumes they want an Internet search for the name (there is no way to control what sites the device pulls into the search). So, if students want to use their camera, they will need to first put their device in airplane mode or turn off the WiFi connection.
