Scratch Onohara Intro (intermediate)

Scratch Project

Each of our kids (mostly 3rd graders) programmed a simple object ("sprite") or scene introducing him/herself, hidden in "Takoyaki", a popular food in Osaka. Check out the program behind each sprite! They are very simple, yet effective. (The overarching script is for more advanced programmers.)

Fly Catcher Game (beginner)

Scratch Project

A very elegantly programmed little game. One of the first programs I wrote - copying from instructions, so I don't know who is the actual inventor. It taught me how to program in Scratch and has inspired many kids to use the same tricks in quite different contexts.

Slide Show (intermediate)

Scratch Project

Nice example of a slide show, in this building instructions for a four-legged LEGO robot. Building the actual robot is of course for dearing tinkerers. Beginners should start by arranging pictures from their digital camera into a slide shows which the viewer can control on the keyboard.

Christmas Tree (beginner)

Scratch Project
What a heartwarming animation! I have no idea who created this, but I couldn't keep myself from picking it up. I simplified the logic and added music. The original creation is here. To investigate how it works, give one of the snow sprites a different background color!

Color Pencil (beginner)

Scratch Project
This pen changes color (right and left arrows) and thickness (up, down). To draw, just press the mouse. Feel free to use this sprite in your own programs!

Typing Tutor (advanced)

Scratch Project

Scratch lets kids write programs before they can type. But to get ready to move to the next level, they better learn how to type properly. This typing drill, written in Scratch, is meant to teach you the right finger technique. Parents support recommended to reinforce which finger goes where.

Cat-Mouse-Cheese (beginner)

Scratch Project

This is a simple game I made to teach a group of 2nd graders. Click with the mouse, and the mouse starts to draw a path on which the cat can walk. Try to copy it and then make it more interesting: Let the cat walk faster, add a function for the up arrow, let something happen when the cat touches the mouse or the mouse touches the cheese. Have fun exploring and adding new functions!

3-D Builder (advanced)

Scratch Project

I spotted this fascinating program off the Scratch website. Just two sprites, quite short programs, but it lets you build cool 3-D structures. Very elegant, I'm truly impressed!
More logic games of this an other types are listed listed in this gallery

Planetary orbit simulator (advanced)

Scratch Project

A number of planets orbit around the sun. All of them use simplifications of Newton's law of gravity, but some are more simplified than others. Move the sun with the arrow keys and see what happens.

Please feel free to use and imitate any of these Scratch projects!

10歳長男がホームページを作りたいと言い出したのでドットインストールの「HTMLの基礎」を自習させました。Github Pagesも教え完成したのがこれ-> 「おいしいオムレツの特徴」でゲラゲラ笑ってて楽しかったようです
