Primary Computing. Made Easy.
1. Scratch Chat
What will you learn?
The basics of Scratch, including:
- Add backgrounds (stages) and characters (sprites)
- Write a simple program to have two sprites talk to each other.
- Write a program for a sprite (e.g ball) to move a certain distance
What will you need?
The Scratch website
2. Backgrounds (stages)
Watch the video to learn how to add backgrounds, which are called Stages in Scratch.
Once you have watched the video, try it yourself.
3. Characters (sprites)
Now add some characters (sprites) into your stage and move/resize them. For this program we are going have two animal sprites and a ball sprite.
Move forwardGlide to position5. Movements
Write a program for the ball sprite to move from one character sprite to another. You will need to experiment with the number of steps.
Remember you will need to leave a wait code block at the start to let the characters finish talking.Can you continue the conversation? How would the character send the ball back?
