Scratch

Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab. It is provided free of charge.   http://scratch.mit.edu

With Scratch,  our 4th grade students learned about the Cartesian Coordinate System.   The objective of the program:


  • have a sprite (character)  jump to a quadrant 
  • change colors
  • make a sound
  • identify the x and y values of the quadrant

Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively  essential skills for life in the 21st century.  Below is an image of the program code.
