Scratch Tutorials from EXPO for Excellence Magnet Elementary School

Fun video tutorials created by elementary school kids!

Students at EXPO Elementary School in St. Paul, MN were beta testers for Scratch. Subsequently as part of their expository writing project, they created a series of 12 short video tutorials on Scratch. The tutorials, narrated by the students themselves, cover the basics of working with Scratch:

  • making buttons
  • making backgrounds
  • open and save
  • using a starting block
  • setting a position
  • hide and show
  • repeat
  • drawing a sprite
  • changing costumes
  • broadcast
  • using "Say"
  • using "Pen."
