Complete these five challenges to earn your Introduction to Scratch Badge. Be creative. Or, in place of #1-4, you can complete the CoderDojo Beginner Scratch Sushi cards along with #5.
1. Animation – Create an animated sprite using five different costumes.You can select costumes from the library or make your own – but don’t use the “next costume” block! Tip: Use the “(costume #)” block. See: http://tinyurl.com/ScratchBadge1
2. Motion – Make a project where the main sprite follows the mouse pointer. Then add a sprite to chase the first sprite. Tip: Use the “point towards [mouse pointer v]” and “move (value) steps” blocks to complete this puzzle. See: http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/26702997/
3. Looks and Sound – Create a sprite that uses two different effects. Then add a sound. Tip: Use the “Set [select effect here v]effect to (value)”block and the “play sound [ v]”block. Get the sound from the sound library. See: http://tinyurl.com/ScratchBadge3
4. Variables – Create a project that changes a variable at least 3 times. Tip : Use the “Change variable[ v] to (value)” block. See http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/26374656/
5. Complete the 10 Block Challenge, the Tucker coin-toss challenge, or a similarly complex independent project. See: http://scratch.mit.edu/studios/520375/
