I’ll explain more on the Monday meet.

Week Beginning 15th February

Have a look at this scratch project: aquarium screensaver – explore on Scratch

Remix and try this challange:
Press the green flag to make the fish swim. How can you make the fish move all over the screen (to make it a true screen saver)? Can you make the fish change colour as it swims?

after that look at this one and remix: Aquarium – modify on Scratch

What do you need to add to the code to make the fish swim constantly across the aquarium? Choose from the command blocks provided below the code. Can you add a second fish? How would you change the speed of the fish? Can you add another fish or sea creature and make it move?
