I can explore ScratchJr for myself

Open the Under the Sea project complete the following challenges:

  • Can you change how the creatures move?

  • Can you stop some of the creatures moving?

  • What else can you get the creatures to do?  Change the size, say something, disappear

  • Loop-is a type of command that allows us to repeat the same sequence multiple times. 

  • Repeat Loop-allow us to tell the computer exactly how many times we want to repeat commands inside the loop.

  • Forever Loop-there is no limitation on how many times a sequence will repeat inside the loop. Once the computer reaches a forever loop it will run the instructions inside of them forever or at least until the program is stopped.

Ways to extend or increase difficulty in a game project.

CA CSS K-2.IC.18 - Compare how people lived and worked before and after the adoption of new computing technologies.


  • debug: find and fix errors (bugs) in programs

  • decomposition: breaking down a problem into smaller pieces

  • program: a set of instructions written in a language that a computer understands

  • sequence: a set of instructions that follow one another in order
