1. Arrange students into groups. Each group needs at least ONE person who has a mobile device.
2. If their phone camera doesn't automatically detect and decode QR codes, ask students to
4. Cut them out and place them around your class / school.
1. Give each group a clipboard and a piece of paper so they can write down the decoded questions and their answers to them.
2. Explain to the students that the codes are hidden around the school. Each team will get ONE point for each question they correctly decode and copy down onto their sheet, and a further TWO points if they can then provide the correct answer and write this down underneath the question.
3. Away they go! The winner is the first team to return with the most correct answers in the time available. This could be within a lesson, or during a lunchbreak, or even over several days!
4. A detailed case study in how to set up a successful QR Scavenger Hunt using this tool can be found here.
|1. Cell Membrane||Found in animal and plant cells. This functions as the gatekeeper as it controls what goes in and out of the cell.||2. Nucleus||This acts as the control center/brain of cell as it directs cell activities and contains genetic materials.||3. Cytoplasm||Found in animal and plant cells. This holds or houses gel-like fluids that support cell organelles and gives the cell its shape. This also contains molecules such as enzymes which are responsible for breaking down waste and also aid in metabolic activity.||4. Cell Wall||Only in plant cells. It gives the cell its structure and protection against mechanical stress and infection. It also aids in diffusion of gases in and out of the cell.||5. Vacuoles||This is found in plant cells and stores water, food, waste and more for a plant cell. It also helps to moves things around the cell.||6. Chloroplasts||Only found in a plant cell. This captures energy from sunlight. and uses this energy to produce cell food, which is sugar. This process called photosynthesis.||7. Mitochondria||This is the powerhouse of the cell as it produces energy by breaking down food/nutrients through cellular respiration.||8. Endoplasmic Reticulum||This is found in plant and animal cells and is the transportation network of the cell. This carries substances, like protein, to various parts of the cell.||9. Golgi Apparatus||This is found in animal and plant cells. Receives materials from endoplasmic reticulum and distributes them. It is like the cell's post office. A major function is the modifying, sorting and packaging of proteins for secretion.||10. Lysosome||This is one of the key organelles involved in digestion and waste removal. These are organelles that contain digestive enzymes, and they digest excess or worn out organelles, food particles, and engulfed viruses or bacteria.||11. Ribosomes||This makes protein for the cell. Protein is needed for many cell functions such as repairing damage or directing chemical processes.|
