This week we have been continuing to learn Etoys. Specifically, we focused on making an object follow another object. We did this through the creation of a game. In the game, we had an animal or person chasing a prize, and a “bad guy” chasing the animal or person. The object of the game was to reach the prize before being touched by the bad guy, which causes you to lose. To do this, we had to draw the characters in separate layers, and create a complicated coding sequence for each. Last week, we taught the fifth graders at CSG how to do a basic coding sequence in Scratch, and getting to teach younger students was great practice for St. John. For me, it finally sank in that we are actually going to St. John in May, and that we get to teach students there.
