Can you create a code for every letter on your keyboard? Then, the ABC challenge is just the project for you and your students!
Starting with the when space key pressed event and changing it to a letter, students need to create a code. The challenge is to create a different code for every letter on their keyboard.
I themed my codes around drawing and stamping.
For instance, when the A key is pressed and you move the mouse you might get something like this:
Press the Spacebar to clear and then press the C key and you could get this:
Press S and you will get a bunch of Scratch!
A couple of tips I learned along the way:
Add the Stop other scripts in the sprite block to each letter event. This will keep codes from taking over!
Use Duplicate to copy and then alter codes! Right -clicking a code will bring up the duplicate option.
This project allows for lots of creativity and will really push your students to be creative. It would also be a great group project!
You are welcome to have students open my example and remix it! For instance, what happens when you change Go to Mouse Pointer to Go To Random Position? ;)
