Grade 6: February 4, A Simple Touch or Avoid Game

This week, as a class, we worked through the creation of a simple Touch or Avoid game - the mouse had to get to the cake without being hit by the bats (or whatever other characters were chosen!). Students were introduced to some of the advanced control blocks in Scratch ("if touching?" block), and used the built in timer feature.

At the end of class, we had just enough time to see a MaKey MaKey in action. This neat little piece of technology allowed us to use a potato, banana and an apple to control a Scratch project I had provided that featured singing fruits and vegetables.
