This lesson goes through the steps for creating a Scratch account. When you have a Scratch account you can log into the Scratch website and save your projects, share them and comment on other projects.
To create a Scratch account, children will need to enter a parent's or guardian's email address so that their Scratch account can be confirmed.
If you are creating the Scratch accounts in school it will be necessary to send a note home with each student explaining that they need to get and bring in the email address. There is a download provided with this lesson that has a note for the parents if you wish to print it out and use it.
Or alternatively, this lesson could be given as homework by printing it out and sending it home with the students to create their account with the help of their parent or guardian.
