For your final Scratch project you will be incorporating the programming concepts that we have covered into your work. You should be using these concepts and be able to explain why you used them and how they work in your project: (Download this pdf to help you with the blocks needed programming concepts chart)
Once you have completed your work make sure that you have:
When you submit your work to me via the Google Form the information goes into a spreadsheet. I am using this spreadsheet to assess your work and making comments. Although these assessments are then transferred to Jupiter grades, there may be a day or two before I can get your work assessed and reported.
If you are wondering if you have submitted work, then look at this spreadsheet for your name.
If you haven’t submitted your work correctly, then review the post that we went over in class that outlines the submission process and the check-off list for your work. http://bit.ly/blog-submissionHowTo
Use these blocks in your Conversation project to take the place of some of the wait blocks you may have used to get the timing right. These blocks are a way to control communication between Sprites and are essential if you are going to create more advanced projects.
Replace the wait blocks you may have used in your Conversation with the Broadcast blocks. Use the Broadcast blocks to trigger your Sprites to appear or disappear on the stage. Control the actions of a Sprite through the actions of another Sprite in a creative way.

Example: Having troubles with these blocks? Take a look at my example, try remixing it and adding some of your own blocks and Sprites, see if you can figure out how these blocks can work for you.
Once I have reviewed your work you can submit your completed Conversation that uses the Broadcast blocks to my studio. http://scratch.mit.edu/studios/449970/ This will help other students who may be struggling with the Broadcast and Receive concepts.
What can you create with only 10 Scratch blocks? Create a project using only these 10 blocks. Use them once, twice, or multiple times, Use ONLY these blocks, but you can use any of these blocks more than one time, with more than one Sprite.
You can use more than one Sprite and a Background.
Remember to change the values in the blocks, don’t just leave them the same as they are right now.
Be creative, make something interesting!!!
