Exploring the Scratch 2.0 interface




When you open Scratch 2.0 Online or Offline Editor, you will see a screen like this:



The Scratch 2.0 interface consists of several parts that help you create and edit your projects:


  • The Stage is where you can see your sprites and backdrops in action. You can switch between different backdrops by clicking on them in the bottom right corner. You can also change the size of the stage by clicking on the icons next to the green flag and red stop sign.



  • The Sprites Pane is where you can see all the sprites in your project. You can add new sprites by clicking on the buttons above the pane, or by dragging and dropping images from your computer. You can also delete, duplicate, or rename sprites by right-clicking on them.



  • The Scripts Area is where you can write scripts for your sprites using blocks. Blocks are color-coded pieces of code that snap together like puzzle pieces. You can drag blocks from the Blocks Palette on the left, and drop them in the scripts area. You can also edit, delete, or rearrange blocks by clicking or dragging them.



  • The Costumes Tab is where you can change the appearance of your sprites. You can choose from a library of costumes, or draw your own using the Paint Editor. You can also import images from your computer, or use the Camera to take a picture.



  • The Sounds Tab is where you can add sounds to your sprites. You can choose from a library of sounds, or record your own using the Sound Recorder. You can also import sounds from your computer, or use the Microphone to capture audio.



To switch between different tabs, click on the tabs at the top of the scripts area. To switch between different sprites, click on the sprites in the sprites pane.


Creating your first project




Now that you are familiar with the Scratch 2.0 interface, let's create a simple animation project. In this project, we will make a cat sprite move across the stage and say hello.


To create your first project, follow these steps:


  • Click on the cat sprite in the sprites pane to select it. You will see its scripts, costumes, and sounds in the tabs above.



  • Go to the scripts tab and drag a when green flag clicked block from the Events category in the blocks palette. This block tells Scratch to run the script when you click on the green flag above the stage.



  • Next, drag a go to x: -200 y: 0 block from the Motion category and snap it below the previous block. This block tells Scratch to move the cat sprite to a specific position on the stage.



  • Then, drag a glide 2 secs to x: 200 y: 0 block from the same category and snap it below the previous block. This block tells Scratch to make the cat sprite glide smoothly to another position on the stage in a given time.



  • Finally, drag a say Hello! for 2 seconds block from the Looks category and snap it below the previous block. This block tells Scratch to make the cat sprite say something for a given time.



  • Your script should look like this:




  • To test your project, click on the green flag above the stage. You should see the cat sprite move across the stage and say hello.



  • To save your project, click on File > Save As and give it a name. If you are using Scratch 2.0 Online Editor, you will need to sign in or create an account first.
