Lesson Plan

  • Landforms- 5th

Idea: TXLA 2011- Jim Holland - http://www.digitalgoonies.com

Make the codes, cut, keep your set to put on shelves, and then make copies of the bottom halves to give to the kids (manila envelopes)



  • Pair kids & give them clipboards

  • Have an alphabet stapled to their Question Sheet

  • Don’t laminate QR codes- glare interferes

  • Have them turn up the volumebefore they begin

More Suggestions

  • Use cardstock to copy QR code pieces

  • Use ‘strikethrough’ font to make lines to cut in half

  • Cut lines VERY STRAIGHT!

  • Give each pair of students a letter on the envelope and write it on each corresponding QR code piece


  • Kitchen Geologist

  • Mr. Parr’s Science Songs *

  • Bill Nye You Tube clips

  • maps
