Day 4 Lesson Plan: Sprite Smarts

This lesson plan is for the fourth 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.


Sprite Smarts

Demonstrate how to use the various control structures, especially those related to sending and receiving events, and checking on the status of variables. Show how these can be used to get sprites to communicate and react to what is happening with other sprites.


Students will have the opportunity to present their projects.

Lab Time / Revision
