The „Flashcards” is a universal ScratchJr project that can be used for various puzzles or quizzes. Tap the flashcard to “turn it over” and reveal the answer. This activity teaches how to use the “start on tap” block and how to edit existing characters.Read more
It’s drum time! Create an animation with the drum and two drumsticks. Every time one of the sticks strikes the drum, the script plays a sound. The movement of the drumsticks should be coordinated, so that they hit the drum by turns, not both at the same time.Read more
This animation will help your students practice with the right and left turn blocks. They will also use “repeat forever” block and recording sounds.Read more
Yet another “match and connect” activity. This time the goal is to connect turn blocks with corresponding angles of rotation. This exercise helps develop your pupils’ spatial intelligence and geometry skills.Read more
This time we’ll use ScratchJr to recreate a real life “animation” – a traffic light sequence.
This exercise not only teaches how to implement messages in ScratchJr, but can also serve as an excellent supplement to any road safety lesson or talk.
This version of the Memory Game animation is very similar to the one detailed in the previous post. In this project, the goal is to create an animation in which letters flash in and out in a random order. Your pupils will learn to assign time arguments to the “wait” blocks, as well as practice reading and writing.Read more
This project will see your pupils use the “wait”, “hide” and “show” blocks to create a challenging game that will also serve as a memory work-out. It will also provide an excellent opportunity to introduce the concepts of timelines and event sequencing.Read more
This fun activity requires a lot of precision and accuracy. It can be used as a way to sum up work with basic motion blocks or an interlude during the lesson.Read more
This warm-up exercise will help your youngest students better grasp the idea of basic motion blocks (moving up, down, left and right).
This is an offline exercise that you can do before you start your pupils on the tablets.
Printed coding block cards are a necessary resource that you will use all the time!
ScratchJr Fun cards come in two sizes – big cards best suited for work with bigger groups, and small cards for individual students or for work in pairs. They are perfect for all sorts of offline activities.
