The children will learn about how to create a secure password with including numbers as letters. We will do an activity with our names, where numbers are included. We will guess who's name belongs to whom.


When you create a password, substitute a number where a letter would appear, according to the chart above. Some examples:

Lesson: QR Code Scavenger Hunt

Date: August 16-23, 2012

Welcome back to Trinity and the new IDEA LAB! This is a place where students and teachers can get together to create, plan, collaborate and celebrate amazing ideas!

Today we are going to participate in a QR Code Scavenger Hunt. What is a QR Code? How do you read it?

QR stands for Quick Response, it is a trademark that automotive factories used to track and mark their vehicles. The code consists of black modules (square dots) arranged in a square pattern on a white background. When you scan it, information is read and stored.

Mrs. Harris will introduce the lesson with "Where did Mrs. Harris go this summer?". The lesson is on the bulletin board. We will scan all of the codes and see where I went this summer!
