This week in Scratch we focused on the different costumes on Scratch! (Not like real costumes though, there were different pictures. It was like a slideshow.) We were doing our Earth project and mine is tsunamis. So for my project, my picture was an island with little waves. Then the water moves close to the island and gets pulled back and the fish are laying there with the people picking the fish up. Finally, all the water comes rushing back destroying the island!
So to make that happen in a slideshow we use box coding. The boxes that we use are "show costume for ____ seconds." and you fill in the number of seconds that you want the picture to show. Then you use the "switch costume" box to switch the slideshow to the next picture. Repeat the process until all the pictures have been seen. Now that I've told you about the stuff that we did in STEAM I have to end my letter!
