Hour of Code: Scratch in 5th Grade


5th Grade is going to participate in the Hour of Code next week to kick off their unit on Coding.

“With Scratch, kids and teens can program their own interactive games, stories, animations, and more. In this activity, your students will create an interactive holiday card that they can share with their friends and family — while exploring the fundamentals of programming.”
