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

Kaleidoscope shows how to use the keyboard to move sprites around. Elephant Swirl shows how to trigger musical notes and how to use visual effects with sprites.


Give the students a chance to ask questions about the demos.

Creating Musical Art Projects

The rest of the time will be a lab session directed towards creating something that uses the art and music techniques demonstrated earlier.

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