Scratch – How to…

On this page you find will links to the sites that will help you to get started in Scratch.

Follow this link to download the Program.

The download includes a number of projects that are examples of the ways Scratch can be used. The project folders include “Animation, Games, Greetings, Interactive Art, Music and Dance, Names, Simulations, Speak Up, Stories and Tutorials. Many of the projects can be modified to use in Victorian schools. For example students could use Scratch as part of an integrated inquiry unit of study such as one of the “Speak Up” projects or to demonstrate scientific understandings similar to one of the “Simulation” projects.

I have started to collect other projects that could be useful examples and springboards in classrooms. They are stored online at the Scratch site.

A Gallery of Scratch projects that I think will inspire you.

I hope this saves you some time searching for projects but please send me links to add to the gallery.
