The children of Mr. Roche’s 5th class were busy creating games, animations and quizzes based upon the book ‘Bridge To Terabithia’ using a computer programming tool called ‘Scratch‘. It is a free program developed by Mitch Resnick and others at MIT in Boston. It is easy to get started with but the sky’s the limit! You can download it by clicking here.
The children had to think creatively, work as a team and solve some pretty tricky problems to create their games, animations and quizzes. Just click on the pictures below to try them out. Enjoy!
