Scratch Programming - for Year 7 - Technology Mandatory Multimedia.

Some of the resources used here have been uploaded (and modified) from Scratch M.I.T. and are acknowledged as being excellent tools for learning programming. Others have been made by my students.

At no time do you need to visit the Scratch.M.I.T. website, as you did in Primary School, as all your resources are found within this website, along with your assessment tasks. Instructions using screen dumps show you how to complete each Scratch.

In the five weeks allocated to this topic, students are to make a minimum of five projects to show their understanding of Scratch block programming, using the tasks listed in the resource.

When completed the students can create your own Ultimate challenge, see Scratches 29 and 30 instructions. None of the Scratches are to be games!

Students work individually, at their own pace, completing their chosen self-paced Scratches, then they may complete Scratches 29 and 30 which are their own creation.

However before students can start Scratches 29 and 30, all their completed Scratches must be handed in for checking and assessment marking.

They cannot start on their 29 and 30 until they have been given the 'all clear to proceed'!

Scratches run for half of the a term.

Work at the end of week 5 is to be handed in on the class USB, in individual folders with the student's name as the file name.

A folio entry is to be completed on the projects.

28 Zac - Spiderman H This is one of our students creations.
29 The Ultimate Challenge H Create your own individual challenge masterpiece from the ground up. Only when you have completed at least 15 Scratches. This involves 15 Sprites, with different coding for each, though some maybe modified from another Sprite. The theme is Fireworks. The basic idea is to build upon the ideas used in Scratch 9 which had 15 Sprites.
30 The Coders Ultimate, Ultimate Challenge H This challenge can only be completed after 15 Scratches have been handed in. There are basically no rules except that it cannot be a game, or a copy of another Scratch and must use 20 different coded sprites. Enjoy the Ultimate - Ultimate Challenge!
