Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

This activity is also available on the Scratch site, but the scaffolding of this activity gives the students a chance to successfully create their first game and play. The students learn to modify their background, use variables, loops, conditions that involve the use of colour and moving a sprite with the mouse/finger. The screen recording feature on the iPads enables them the means to showcase their final product. They can either record the game using the full screen (in Scratch) or within the project so their audience can see some of the coding involved. If you are using MacBook laptops, you are able to screen record using โŒ˜, โ‡ง, 5 (Command-Shift-5) on OSX 14 (Mojave) and above or using Quicktime Player. A chromebook needs an extension such as Loom, Screencastify or Screen Recorder.
