As ch and part of my professional networking assignment on Scrath and other visual programming tools being used in schools, serveral lesson ideas were shared and discovered. These lesson ideas are stated below.
Prep & Year 1 – Humanities Inquiry Unit – past and present in the History strand of the Australian Curriculum. Using Scratch Jr, students ‘storyboarded’ a memory they had (Loosing a tooth, having a baby sibling etc.)
Year 6 – Digital Storytelling 📚 using Scratch 3.0. They created a story for junior school students surrounding themes of bullying awareness and using the High Five strategy. Students used the ‘branching feature’ to reinforce good decision making.
