Unit 1: Introduction to Scratch
In this unit, students will learn the basics of block based programming. They will create an account and explore the Scratch website. Students will take two different approaches to creating a program, experimenting through open exploration and following step by step directions.Learning activities will provide students with a foundational understanding of how to use simple features within the Scratch environment. After designing their first project, they will learn how to share their projects to a studio and provide meaningful feedback to others. Finally, they will develop strategies for testing and debugging problems within a Scratch program.
