It’s that time of the year again! Get the scary (cute) costumes out, stock up of sweet treats and bring your pumpkin hats out! This Halloween put your coding skills to the test and bring Halloween into the classroom with this of Halloween-themed coding party. Kids will learn to code a Halloween-themed game with Scratch Programming. If you want your kids to learn how to program, this is one of the best kid-friendly programming languages out there!
Scratch uses a building-block visual interface to create a scaffolded experience for kids and parents. You stack together programming components, such as actions, events, and operators. Each block has a shape that only allows it to be combined with a compatible object. Repeat loops, for example, are shaped like a sideways “U” to let you know that you need to put blocks in between the start and stop of a loop.
Scratch can be used to make real animations and games using either pre-populated images and characters or by uploading new ones. Scratch can also be used without an internet connection. Kids can optionally share their creations on Scratch’s online community. Because Scratch is free and so well supported, it’s one of the first suggestions for kid-friendly programming, and it’s easy to see the influence of Scratch in many other kid-friendly programming languages, such as Blockly.
