This paired-programming activity from the Barefoot Computing project focusses on sequences in algorithms and programs.
Children create an animation of a Viking raid – ideally they will have previously studied Vikings but this is not crucial. A Scratch file is provided for the children to build on, containing several sprites related to Vikings. A short example animation is also included, which is used in discussion of correct sequencing and movement. The task reinforces the use of co-ordinate systems and timing, and requires consideration of audience and production quality.
A wide range of Scratch commands and tools are used, for tinkering and for working towards specific outcomes.
