Scratch

Scratch is designed with learning and education in mind.

Scratch makes coding easy and fun using Blockly to drag and drop code.

As young people create projects in Scratch, they learn many of the 21st century skills that will be critical to success in the future: thinking creatively, communicating clearly, analyzing systematically, using technologies fluently, collaborating effectively, designing iteratively, learning continuously.

Getting Started

 

 

A step-by-step guide to getting started with Scratch Quickly.

(For students who did Squeak Last year and understand a bit of programing)

 

Step1: Watch the intro Scratch Video at the top of the page

 

Step 2 Review simple foreard positive numbers, backward negetativenumbers, and turn commands. These are like the commands we used in LOGO, and with the Roamer Robot. A series of introductory lessons below will get you scratching the surface of programming.

 

Introductory Lessons

 

Step 3: Let's take apart a program and see how it works- How can you change the program by making simple changes in the parameters?

Step by step for a cool racing game

 

http://www.instructables.com/id/Programming-the-Racing-Game-in-Scratch/ 

 

Developed by  Nebo School

 

 

The Scratch program was developed by MIT to teach young students programming concepts and develop skill in multimedia communication. Using a visual system of "Tiles" that contain commands users can connect together to create programs.  These programs direct the characters and objects in the game.

Scratch for Elementary Students

Project #1:  "Chasing/Eating" (Pac Man Type Game)

Requirements:
1. Game must have a main character that the user moves about the screen using the arrow keys on the keyboard.
2. There must be "food" that the character eats.  The food will disapear after the character eats it.
3. The game area must have a maze that the main character must "bounce" off when it touches the maze.

Extras:
1. The game keeps score based on the number of food eaten.
2. Ghosts or evil characters chase the main character.
3  System for keeping track of the lives of the main character.

Project #2: Red Light/Green Light

Requirements:
1. Must have 2 different dancers that use costume changes to simulate movement and dancing.
2. Must have music that plays while characters are dancing.
3. Must have a system where the user clicks on a green or red light sprites to start or stop the music and dancing.

Extras:
1. Use photographs of yourself to create dancing sprite.
2. Add sprites that simulate colored lights changing on the dance floor.
3. Use different stages to change the setting of the dance floor.

Project #3: Pong

Requirements:
1. Must have a paddle that the user controls with the mouse.
2. Must have a ball that moves on its own and bounces off the edges of the world.
3. Ball must bounce off the paddle.

Extras:
1. Design a "Breakout" like game where the ball hits bricks in a wall.  The bricks disappear and score is kept.
2. The ball bounces off the paddle in an angle of reflection that is equal to the angle of attack.
3. Use random statements to vary the ball angle when it bounces off the paddle.

Project #4: Baby Catch (From Georgia Tech's Institute for Computing Education)


Requirements:
1. A Ball that falls down from the top of the screen to the bottom.
2. When Ball touches bottom of stage - it returns to the top to fall again.
3. A Baby or other Sprite to "Catch" the ball.

Extras:
1. Score - when Baby catches the ball the points increase.
2. Bouncing:  Ball bounces of bottom of stage and Baby.
3. Realistic gravity.

Project #5: Target Game

Requirements:
1. Must have a canon that the user can change angle of shot with the arrow keys.
2. Must have a canon ball that "shoots" from the canon equal to the angle of the canon at the time of the shot.
3. Canon ball must stamp as it travels to show the path of the shot.

Extras:
1. Self moving targets that hide when hit by the canon ball.
2. Simulate gravity effects so the canon ball takes a parabolic path.

Project #6: Spinner Art (Screensaver Program)


Requirements:
1. Have a Sprite that spins stamps itself on stage.
2. Spinning Sprite glides around to random spots around stage - leaving a stamped trail.
3. When "space" key is pressed - the stamp effects clear the stage.

Extras:

Assignment:

 We have studied animals and the places where they lived called habitats. Write a program in scratch where you place two animals in the place where they live and show how they can move. ( Abird that flies, a bear that climbs ect.)

 

Steps

 

1. First draw or choose a back ground

2. Draw or import a sprite

3. Use the movement blocks to program you animal to move

4. Now get creative and devlop a story around the animals and background you chose
