Another super easy stamper art Scratch to modify. Bonus! This one has a counter that lets you see how many times the sprite stamps its image on the screen.

VERY advanced and excellent example of  Scratch painting program (Great to use for a remix to learn new code)  http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/21723174/ 

Amplitude Art 3. Create art based on how loud you are!
Amplitude Art JRVV!


Amplitude Art is a fun and easy to make program. 
·       The circle moves based on sounds you make and their loudness. 
·       Try singing and see what happens a your volume changes. 
·       Try holding a note at the same volume and pitch. See if you can control the circle and have it become almost astraight line. ·       Watch the values in the variables Amplitude and Loudness as you sing. 
·       What is happening to the value in the variable SinCounter when you are not singing?
Click on See inside button.
What line of code could you change to make the ball go higher and lower when you make sounds?
Record what's happening on your experiments sheet. CEO (Candy earning opportunity)!!

http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/573350/ The louder you talk/yell the faster and higher he goes Only one sprite and one script. Great one to REMIX!
Advanced - 3D Ripplehttp://scratch.mit.edu/projects/21723174/  This one even has code for changing your camera angle on the 3D cube that you can make pulsate. Play with it, then do your own remix. 11:00-12:00 
Frogger game  http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/24600594/
Using arrow keys for movement.

12:00 – 12:30 - Lunch 

12:30 – 1:00 - Programming name bracelets to be printed on 3D printer. Go to
MadeWithCode.com  http://madewithcode.com
and program name bracelets. It will take 3 to 4 weeks before the bracelets arrive at your house.This is a fun site. Take 5 minutes to explore it!

Edit and Import Green Screen photos from yesterday
Show students how to remove green background in Scratch Sprite Edit window. Next show them how import their green screen photos, which have already had the green background removed.  They can use classmates photos with the classmate's permission. Give students back their storyboards. 

1:00 - 2:15  Green screen Scratch Project and CS Unplugged Magic Card Trick http://csunplugged.org/error-dectection  – Parity, error detection, and correction (TAs work with groups of two teams of two students each team while other students are working on Scratch) 
Students work on Green Screen Scratch projects starring themselves.
You can bring in or download an mp3 file to add to yourScratch project as animation background music. Students share projects with class if they wish or can show just before class one morning.

Our Scratch 2.0 Projects For Monday and Tuesday
 Be sure you create your Scratch 2.0 accounts so you can save your projects and be able to access them at home. - Go to http://scratch.mit.edu, decide on your user name and password. Help tab(http://scratch.mit.edu/help)  Click on the Getting Started Intro Video on the help page. Its link is http://vimeo.com/80961102  Click on the Step By Step Scratch project http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/24817207/?tip_bar=getStarted#editor on the help page to view Cassie Dancing sample. 

Click on the Tips tab for the steps to create the Cassie Dancing project. It will help you see how to use the programming blocks (Motion, Event, Looks, etc.) to make your 2D animation. (We'll take green screen photos of you for you to use tomorrow to be the star of your own 2D animation you create and program!) “Animated Name Scratch”  Project Sample at
http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/24461177/ Sprite moves and changes costume based on volume” of their speech or clap Project  Sample at http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/24496487/#player Extra challenge to add to the Animated Name Scratch – Have on letter respond to loudness (Tip: Check the code is in the” Sprite moves based on volume”project above http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/24496487  for code sample.
