Lesson idea – World War 2 QR Code hunt

I’ve blogged about QR code hunts before but thought I would share a resource I’ve made which uses QR code hunts to link to a group work activity for Year 6 to go with their World War 2 topic. The idea of the lesson is that children take on the role of code breakers, discovering pieces of information from allied and enemy planes to help them find 6 secret WW2 locations. They need to put this information together to crack the codes to help them find the locations in a TerraClues map hunt. (I didn’t make the TerraClues Hunt which the first QR code links to. Many thanks to ’Fibreman’ who did!).

You can find the QR codes and lesson outline here.

I have also made a little introductory video, using the fabulous Tellagami app, which you can find here.

This hunt uses codes generated by visualead which is free to use for up to 15 codes, if you sign up for an account.
