Grade 7: Final CODING Project CREATE DAY


As you finish your final products for our coding unit, I want you to:

  1. Always, refer to the criteria to make sure you have met all the requirements needed to be successful.
  2. Create a feedback form (either digital or analog) to gather feedback when we PLAY and give feedback to each other next class.
  3. If you have created a game on Scratch, please share it publicly and link it here, so everyone can access it.

You’ve created a basic PONG or MAZE game in class.

Remember, start with simple game concepts while you are honing your coding skills.  Once that is working and you have a completed game done, I want you to add to the game:

  1. Add a second (or even more!) levels:

           2. Add a counter/score

At the end of class today, you will get feedback from your fellow designers:

+ What is something that works well or is interesting/creative?

– What is something that is not working or could be improved?


Grade 7: Playing with Scratch

Since I am out today,  you can easily follow this tutorial and create with Scratch.

Save what you create, so I can see it next class!

In class today, you need to watch this tutorial:

As you watch this tutorial, I suggest you open Scratch so you can play around as you watch (if that works for you).  Refer back to this tutorial to help you if you get stuck.

Play tutorial > Pause & Try it Out  > Repeat

Then, you will need to create something that uses the “double jump” scripting you learned from the video.

If you have any issues with the web-based Scratch, you may want to download the Scratch Offline editor:

If you are successful with this, then try this challenge:

What’s the coolest thing you can create with 10 blocks?
