Problem: You need to design a story in which two characters, Mary and Frank, talk about the destination for their end of course trip.
Before starting the activity with Scratch, it is a good idea to create a storyboard with a sequence of images. This will help ensure that the story makes sense and will give you a chance to think about the dialogue between the characters:
Let’s work with Scratch 3.0 programming:
1.- Access to Scratch https://scratch.mit.edu and login with your username. Create a new project and name it Course Trip.
2.- At least you must use these backdrops:
3.- Now select a Girl (Abby) and a Boy (Devin) sprites from the library and create three new sprites: Text 1, Text 2, Text 3.
4.- To create a conversation you will use theses blocks:
You place “broadcast… “ on the first character who finishes his or her part in the dialogue. This will make the next character to begin his or her part with “when I receive…”
5.- Now create your story with 14 sequences and include the following sequences:
First Sequence: There must be an introductory title that shows the subject that we are going to describe.
Sequences from 2 to 13 must tell a story and must use at least the Backdrops from point 2.
Final Sequence: The last Sequence must show this Backdrop with the title “The End”.
