What are conditionals and booleans? We’ll discuss this today!
Watch this video about uploading and downloading projects for Scratch.
Continue exploring loops, variables, and conditionals in Scratch with Mr. Willingham.
Here is yesterday’s work if you need it. 7-1.Doe.John.FirstProgram.0.1.sb2-2e1er2t
Prepare for a pop “quiz” over the vocab here.
Explore Scratch after the quiz.
Introduction to Scratch (Loops and Conditional)
As a class we will look at and manipulate all of the parts of a computer while discussing their function. You can find the bulk of today’s discussion here.
The quiz over the parts of the computer will be Friday.
Take the first 10 minutes to explore a program of your choice on http://Scratch.mit.edu. Use the blue see inside button to see what code is needed to make a program work. You may make changes as you like. See what you can make happen. Explore.
Start exploring the first program that we will work with. Take some time to understand how it works. You will not turn anything in today, so mess around with the program. See what you can make happen. The program and some instructions can be found here.
Just a few people did not finish yesterday’s assignment. Take care of business. Get your work turned in.
Pick one of the following. Complete the activity. Download the certificate after you finish. Upload the certificate to your shared folder in OneDrive. Leave the certificate file name as-is.
If you finish early, try another of the options or study vocab here. If you don’t finish, you have homework. Your Hour Of Code certificate is due today.
Work alone. Work silently. Be respectful.
Too easy? For some of you, these activities may be too easy. Complete one of them (that should be quick and easy), turn in your certificate, and then create a program in Scratch. Make whatever you like, but make sure you save your work to the computer, and be prepared to explain to Mr. Willingham what kind of experience you have with programming on Monday.
The final project is due by the start of class on Wednesday, November 8th. This means you really need to turn in your work today. If needed, you may come in early Wednesday to work on the project as well. Instructions Here
Save your project as 7-1.LastName.FirstName.FinalProject. Turn it in to the shared folder in OneDrive. Office365 Instructions Here
Use the time to make every part of your project better first. Have a neighbor listen to your work.
Now you may preview the 2nd unit by exploring Scratch @ scratch.mit.edu.
