Scratch

Top Subjects:  Animals   Art/Architecture   Geography   Health   History   Math   Reading   Science
Resource:Scratch
Provider:Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Summary:Age Range: 8-16 (Grades 3-10, with parental supervision). The good folks at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) developed this website that offers “Scratch,” a new programming language designed to help young people “create their own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art”— and then share them on the web.
Description:As kids (8 and up) use Scratch, they learn important mathematical and computational ideas, think creatively, analyze systematically, gain a deeper understanding of the process of design, and use technology to develop learning skills for the 21st century.

Scratch is available FREE online and/or can be downloaded for Mac OS and Windows at the website.

When you get to the site, choose a tutorial or start with the Getting Started tutorial. The categories are:
  • Animation
  • Art
  • Music
  • Games
  • Stories
Follow along and then try for yourself! There are also activity guides, and coding cards to download.

This is a great way to engage in math while having fun!

Also, ScratchJr is available - a simplified version of Scratch designed for ages 5 to 7.
