The short-and-simple activities provide an inviting entry point into Scratch, the graphical programming language used by millions of kids around the world. Kids can use this colorful 75-card deck to create a variety of interactive programming projects. They'll create their own version of Pong, Write an Interactive Story, Create a Virtual Pet, Play Hide and Seek, and more! Each card features step-by-step instructions for beginners to start coding with Scratch. The front of the card shows an activity kids can do with Scratch--like animating a character or keeping score in a game. The back shows how to put together code blocks to make the projects come to life! Along the way, kids learn key coding concepts, such as sequencing, conditionals, and variables. This collection of coding activity cards is perfect for sharing among small groups in homes and schools.
