drawing squares in scratch

Coding with Scratch: Loopy Squares

Age 7 to 14

In this project you will use Scratch to draw squares. Lots of squares!

Starting with just one square and building up to complex artistic patterns.

Key coding points to look out for:

  • Write a sequence of code to draw a square
  • Use the Pen blocks to draw
  • Change the code to make it much simpler by using a Loop
  • Make small changes the code to create complex patterns

Loops are really important in coding and you will come across them in many programs.

Scratch is a great way for you to learn how to code. Its fun and easy to use ... but also very powerful! It's the programming language used in most schools around the world.

It's completely free to use and runs on most computers.
