Scratch is Missing Starter Project and Resources

Scratch is Missing is a writing/programming exercise disguised as a mystery story. See for information and teacher resources.
Scratch is Missing is a mystery story solved by your students using the Scratch programming language.  Students remix the existing Scratch starter project and finish the story.  Completed projects can be submitted to the Scratch is Missing Studio and will be considered for posting on the Scratch is Missing website.
It's can be used as a classroom activity for introducing computer programming and is aligned with multiple common core standards .  The Scratch is Missing companion website includes many resources to help you get started, including: printable storyboard templates, planning worksheets and links to example projects. Everything is free to use and distribute.


If your classroom or lab only works with Scratch 1.4, you can download a version of the starter project for 1.4.
