First QR Literature quest

For the First QR contest at Woodrow Wilson High School, I'm using famous first lines from well-known books and authors. I've selected 5 books and embedded their first line in a QR Code. Here is a Google Doc with the 5 codes.

The students that complete the activity successfully will receive a token prize, while one chosen at random will win a gift card. I'm thinking of using a Google form as a entry form.

If your school uses this activity, please leave a comment.


  1. this sounds like fun and i am excited to organize one! i have a few questions for you:
    what do the students do once they have decoded the first lines? do they have to figure out the title of the book it came from? how are the winners determined?
    thanks :)

  2. If you do create a form, please post it here so others might benefit.
