Loops

Using Repeating Sets of Blocks to Animate a Sprite

Purpose: Students will be able to animate a sprite by looping sets of blocks that use next costume along with repeated step movement.

Lesson Goals: I can...

  • Animate a sprite with movement using a repeat loop and multiple costumes
  • Compare and identify scripts that will perform the same action, with or without loops

Activity 1: Animal Parade        

Using the frog’s script as a model, students create scripts for the other animals to make them move, then stop in the same location:

 

Activity 2 & 3: Dance Party

Students will use basic events and loops to create an animated Dance Party with 2 sprites.

In Activity 2 students will Plan their project and in Activity 3 they will Build their project.
