Teaching Programming Using Scratch

I loved using the Scratch "Hour of Code" Activity for my classes.  The students were really engaged and the tutorial walked them through each step.

This week, I wanted to extend the learning for some of my classes, but I was struggling with a lesson to show some more advanced features... but not TOO advanced.

These lessons about creating a simple game were great!  We were able to go through Lessons 1-3 in my 45-minute period.  I shared the link with the students so they could try Lessons 4-5 on their own, if they wanted.  Overall the students were excited to be able to program this simple game.
