3rd grade QR codes

What a fun way to introduce kids on how to use and create a QR codes other than creating an author poster using pic collage.  The students choose an author to research.  They find books by the author, a picture of the author and then create their QR code.  Here are a few examples:

 

Lois Ehlert and Colorforms

In Kindergarten we have been talking about shapes and how Lois Ehlert uses lots of shapes to create her stories in her books.  We used the app Colorforms to create shape animals.  The kids loved it!!!  We also talked about how Lois Ehlert is from Wisconsin.  We found out almost everyone has a Wisconsin connection.
Check out this cute video of kindergarteners and their creations!
