Day 2 Lesson Plan: Capture Images and Ideas
This lesson plan is for the second day of the Intermediate-level course, Creative Computer Exploration with Scratch.
For this lesson, we need to bring one or more audio recorders, cameras, and the Scratch board.
The students will report on what they did the first lesson
The students will continue work in their teams
The students will explore taking pictures to use in Scratch projects
The students will experiment with the Scratch board
The students will save their work with an eye to present at the beginning of the next class
Review of Day 1
On the second day, we will briefly talk about what we did on day 1, and discuss if their projects went according to plan. If anyone is ready to present their work, let them. Let kids know that they will all present their work on Day 3, so they really should try to have something started and saved by the end of Day 2.
We will go outside (probably to the courtyard) and take pictures of the surroundings and the students for use in Scratch projects. Then we'll go inside and attempt to get the pictures on the lab computers, and integrate any pictures students may have brought from home.
Let the students play with the scratch board
Help students with their projects
Use whatever image editing software is present to process the pictures
20 minutes before the end of the class, help kids save their work.
