Scratch Jr

2 Points

ScratchJr is an introductory programming language that enables young children (ages 5-7) to create their own interactive stories and games. Children snap together graphical programming blocks to make characters move, jump, dance, and sing. Children can modify characters in the paint editor, add their own voices and sounds, even insert photos of themselves — then use the programming blocks to make their characters come to life.

 

  1. Watch the above video for a brief introduction to ScratchJr’s interface to make your character and program it.
  2. Complete ScratchJr.’s first activity, Drive Through the City, using the following guide.  https://www.scratchjr.org/activities/card01-car.pd
  3. Capture a screenshot of your completed “drive” and off you go to discover more ways to use ScratchJr in your classroom
