I searched the web for appropriate videos and content about Black History Month and famous African Americans for my elementary students. Then I created a QR code using qrstuff.com to take them directly to the information. I created a doc that included a title or name of the famous American, a picture, and an essential question that the students needed to answer after they viewed or read the information. I found that the EQ really helped set a purpose for the task and kept the students focused on the task. After students visited the website then they responded with a tweet or completed an online quiz at socrative.com. The culminating activity had students write a blog sharing what they learned about Black History Month and how it originated. I also had them express their opinion about celebrating Black History Month on their individual blogs.
Here are some pix of the students at work completing the hunt. When the lesson ended they asked when we were doing our next hunt! Lesson success!
