3rd Grade Learns Scratch for the Hour of Code

Because this week is Computer Science Education Week, I want to make sure all of the grade levels get a chance to participate in the Hour of Code campaign.  One of our 3rd graders, Roman, was kind enough to show the class how to do a  project using the open-source programming language from M.I.T., Scratch.  This was a great introduction to Scratch for the other students, who had not seen it before.  Once Roman gave the class a lesson on the basics, they all got on laptops and did a tutorial created especially for students participating in the Hour of Code.  They designed their own holiday cards.  I recorded video of their cards “in action”, and you can view them at the links below:
