I’m compacting curriculum through the use of instructional videos. Next week we will learn how to create a scrolling background in Scratch. The class will brainstorm ideas besides a starfield. Leaves in the wind? Raindrops scrolling down instead of left/right? Dust? Then scripts will be shared to make the background/stage scroll and adding other game elements like shooting…firing…launching. It’s been awhile since we have designed game on paper first so we will do that again. Students are proficient at paper pencil planning so that stage of the assignment should go quickly.
