  16. 16. Project 1 10 Blocks Think: What can you create with only 10 Scratch blocks? How creative can you be when you can only use 10 different blocks? Background: In this activity you will only be uses these 10 blocks: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyWF2Y_D_Uc
  17. 17. Project 2 Debug-its Think: How can you troubleshoot a program when it doesn't work the way you want it to? Can you debug a Scratch program? Background: Debugging is an important skill to learn for any coding project. In this activity, you will investigate what is going awry and find a solution. •Debug-it 1 When the green flag is clicked, both Gobo and Scratch Cat should start dancing. But only Scratch Cat starts dancing! How do we fix the program? •Debug-it 2 In this project, when the green flag is clicked, the Scratch Cat should start on the left side of the stage, say something about being on the left side, glide to the right side of the stage, and say something about being on the right side. It works the first time the green flag is clicked, but not again. How do we fix the program? •Debug-it 3 The Scratch Cat should do a flip when the space key is pressed. But when the space key is pressed, nothing happens! How do we fix the program?
