There are a number of scratch projects I have available.
- Quiz – using Scratch to make a quiz is a nice introduction as it doesn't involve moving sprites
- Knock, Knock Joke – a simple project that focuses on getting sequence right. Good for groups that might struggle with more complex programming to start with.
- Pong – part working, deliberately to teach how to add code without having to start from scratch.
- Shark fishing game – a set of instructions to program a fishing game. In theory this is "teach yourself" time, but it would help to have done some programming in Scratch previously. Fairly straightforward.
- Maze game – a set of instructions to program a basic maze game. A bit more complex and it would help if children knew how to move sprites first, perhaps after fixing the Pong game.
- Diamond Hunt – a bit more complex and open. Reuses an old Entry Level assessment piece.
- Platform Game – a working platform game that can have levels added to it and more complex elements included.
It's important to download Scratch files at the end of each session. This reliably saves them for continuing to work on, but is a little complex.
There's a standalone guide on this:
Managing files (opens in a new tab) – one page on how to upload and download files to save them.
