EDUCATIONAL GAME

Video to show how to access Scratch 3.0 online, use it and save your work, or how to download it.

I have made some worksheets (these are for SCRATCH 3.0) for you to make your own educational game in Scratch, you can adapt the game any way you want (e.g. by using your own questions).  I hope you enjoy making it!   

 If you feel confident, why don't you have a go at designing your own game - this way you will learn much more and your debugging skills will be excellent. 

If you have any problems, contact me through either Mr Pallett or Mrs Storey. Have fun!
