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!
