Pupil Activity Code: 6002 - What is it?
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 to have two animal sprites and a ball sprite.
Write a program for the ball sprite to move from one character sprite to another. You could try using the movement in steps or gliding to a position. This is explained in the video tutorial.
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?
