Day 2 Lesson Plan: Art and Music with Scratch

This lesson plan is for the first day of Creative Computer Exploration with Scratch.


Art and Music with Scratch

The lesson begins with a quick demonstration of two programs:

  1. The Kaleidoscope program distributed with Scratch

  2. Elephant Swirl, a new program

  3. Announce that today we are going to work on art and music, since you often need both to create games

  4. Encourage the students to open the interactive art Scratch demos and change them

  5. Help each student start a project that is saved with their name in s:\scratch

  6. Encourage each student to write about what they are trying to do

The rest of the time will be free experimentation.

At 20 minutes before the class ends, help students save their work.
