Scratch is a free block-based programming tool targeted primarily at children. Using a visual programming approach, users can code interactive stories, games and animations and share their creations through an online community. Developed as a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab, the tool helps young people to apply creativity, reasoning and logic while working on collaborative projects.
This activity kit introduces Scratch to elementary school children. You don’t have to be a developer to lead this activity – just need to be curious and enthusiastic about introducing children to the possibilities with programming.
