Beginning Coding with Scratch
Scratch is a graphical and block-based language good for younger students or beginners of any age. Students will learn programing concepts while creating fun games, activities, and stories. Most programing is done by dragging and dropping blocks with minimal typing. Many graphical characters called “sprites” are supplied along with a large variety of actions they perform. While this is a good language for beginners, it is also possible to continue learning more advanced concepts and produce detailed, more complex creations.
