BootUpPD Curriculum ScratchJr (Grades K-2)
Rating

In this introductory sequence of projects for ScratchJr, we gradually introduce a variety of practices and concepts while simultaneously introducing young coders to a variety of blocks and tools in ScratchJr. Each of the projects is aligned with the algorithms and programming standards developed by the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA). Each project may take several classes to complete.

CS Fundamentals 1.10: Ocean Scene with Loops
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

Returning to loops, students learn to draw images by looping simple sequences of instructions. In the previous plugged lesson, loops were used to traverse a maze and collect treasure. Here, loops are creating patterns. At the end of this stage, students will be given the opportunity to create their own images using loops.
