QR Code Hunting

QR codes are awesome!!!
Are you looking for an innovative lesson? One that is fun and exciting?
I have got an idea for a lesson plan the kids will love!!!
Read about how to implement QR codes in YOUR esl classrooms: 


This is a unique, fun and interactive lesson that includes group work, using a dictionary, reading and more.
It was planned to summarize the unit about London.
The class should be divided into groups.
Each group has a smart phone with a qr code scanner downloaded in it (such as i-nigma, qr scanner or qr reader for iphone).
The first note is given by the English teacher and it has a pictures of the following qr code:
first
The group has to scan the qr code, read the instructions, think about the answer, go to the person mentioned in the text and tell him/her the answer. If their answer is correct - they get a second note with a qr code.
This is the note they get for the first code:
It is 1666. There is a tragedy in London. What is it? If you know the answer, go to the school's secretary for your second question.
The answer is:
THE GREAT FIRE OF LONDON

This is the second one for that particular lesson:

This is the note they get for the second code:
