During their How The World Works unit, Year 5 students looked at forces and energy in their classroom. We decided to introduce programing using Scratch, a free software program. Students learned how to manipulate sprites by designing an obstacle game similar to the famous classic PacMan. So many questions came up about how to make sprites do different things on the screen. We had very little time to work on this so we will definitely get back to it to advance our skills during the next school year.
