Now that you know your way around the interface, you’re ready to use more of Scratch’s programming tools. In this chapter, you’ll do the following:
Explore Scratch’s motion and pen commands
Animate sprites and move them around the Stage
Draw artistic, geometric patterns and create games
Learn why sprite cloning is a valuable tool
It’s time to put on your creative hat and jump into the world of computer graphics!
If you want to make games or other animated programs, you’ll need to use blocks from the Motion palette to move sprites around. Furthermore, you’ll need to command sprites to move to a particular spot on the Stage or turn in a certain direction. You’ll find out how in this section.
