This lesson introduces students to the Scratch programming language and the Scratch website that we use to create Scratch projects.
Note: In January 2019 Scratch 3.0 was released. This has an updated interface, additional sprites & backdrops and some additional functionality. The below video uses the older version of Scratch but will still give you a very good understanding of what it is and how it works.
In this lesson the teacher will demonstrate Scratch to the students using a projector or large screen display. Students shouldn't be using computers to follow these steps as this will distract from the teacher giving the lesson. At the end of this lesson students have an opportunity to use Scratch and explore.
