Mastery Activity 2b : Scene It

Ninja Instructions | Mentor Notes


The last mastery activity asked you to focus on a nursery rhyme. In this activity you can follow the exact same set of guidelines, but you can animate a scene from your favorite TV show or movie. Or if you prefer, a scene from your favorite book. It's all about the power of using Scratch to allow you to be creative! To get some ideas you can check out:


60-90 minutes


Create a brand new story (not a remix this time) that:

  • Uses at least three different sprites where at least one of those sprites is someting you found on the Internet (not a pre-loaded image from Scratch)
  • Use blocks from a minimu of five of the six sub-menus:
  • Sequence several “actions” to “show” a scene from a book, TV show, movie, etc. when the green flag is pressed.
  • We strongly encourage you to use at least three of the following:
    • Recording your own sounds
    • The use of multiple costumes/backdrops
    • Incorporate something unique to you, your school, etc. (why not use a picture of you in your story?)
    • Use broadcast messages to synchronize your story

Things to think about when you are done

  • What are you most proud of in this program? Why?
  • What did you get stuck on? How did you get unstuck?
  • What might you want to add to this next?
