Let's Play! Dynamic Physical Therapy Games using Scratch and Makey Makey. Plus: Turning Code into Calder!

16 juni 2017 2:38
Original Author:  Carrie Beth Rykowski Content Teaser ​This STEAM unit is a multifaceted simulation of engineering research combined with an art project!
This unit was taught to a 7th grade Science Enrichment elective course; however, it can easily be adapted to a variety of subjects and grade levels. Since there are not currently computer science standards for middle grades, the high school Introduction to Digital Technology standards were used. Additional standards include 7th Grade Life Science, 7th grade Visual Arts, and 7th grade CTAE Engineering and Technology.

There is an abundance of materials, so feel free to pick and chose what works for you!

Scratch Piano

3 juni 2017 11:14
Original Author:  Sue Gray Content Teaser A digital making project for Scratch and Makey Makey. I run two Code Clubs at local primary schools.  This last half-term I've been working with a group of Year 5 (age 9-10 years) students using Scratch.  We made a Code Club project called Lost in Space and then extended it to make a quiz based on work they had been doing in class on English grammar.  For the next half-term they have asked if we could do something 'physical' as the school has a bunch of Makey Makeys.  Over the break I've been working on a worksheet  for this project.

Creative Coding Using Scratch - Project Instruction - Dancing Friends

28 mei 2017 14:58
Original Author:  Fanghua Yu Content Teaser Creative Coding Using Scratch: project instruction sheet.

The attached chapters are from my recent book on Scratch coding. Different from other books already published, this book has adopted a more intuitive and pictorial style to teach kids how to use Scratch to create great programs, with little help from adults. It has full picture and step-by-step guide for every project, with sufficient tips and guidance for kids to experiment more based on what they have learned. Building program has become as simple as building LEGO® models.

Scratch Day Photo Booth Props

9 mei 2017 20:19
Content Teaser Print these out on card stock for a fun photo booth! Also great for storytelling! We were looking for some fun props to include in a photo booth for Scratch Day, so we made some.  First we enlarged several of the sprites from Scratch and inserted them into a document. Then we printed the document on card stock and cut out the sprites.  Finally, we attached a straw (the one that bends is the best) to the back of each using tape.  I'm thinking these might be fun to use in a storytelling activity or for brainstorming a Scratch project.   Resource Files Other Files:  scratchdayphotoprops.pdf Featured:  Not-Featured
