First graders will be tackling a big problem at the end of the school year that involves coding an animation. Let's get the basics of our coding app, Scratch Jr. down, so we can prepare for this challenge. Check out the video below to get started!
Problem: Animals in Action
As a computer scientist, you need to be sure to use the engineering design process to complete this problem. Click on the file below to download launch log pages to help you through the process before and after you get into ScratchJr.
Now that you have selected 3 animals and their habitats and designed your game, it's time to create it in Scratch. Watch the video below.
So! We're talking about animals and habitats. Watch the video below for a fun song to review!
* Sorry about the sound quality of the video below...I'm not sure what happened.
Download the .pdf below, print if possible, and make your plan for your model!
If you haven't completed #TrittatHome 2, please scroll down to find out the problem we're building our skills to solve.
Check out the video below to learn more about Scratch Jr. and the challenges that will help build your skills. Try a few or all eight! Be sure to share your favorite with me!
Way to rock these Scratch Challenges!
Why is it important to test your code frequently while programming? Why do you think this? Comment below.
