Learn the properties of gravity by coding in Scratch

Supporting document included
This is an additional download that supports the video.
No experience needed in programming. Tie together the idea that gravity accelerates and also learn the basics of coding. Scratch is a free online coding platform and I walk you through all the steps needed to make a simple program of an accelerating apple. Coding is a great way to introduce STEM into your classroom and this will help increase your confidence in its use.

What is provided?

1. A step-by-step how-to video showing how to code an apple accelerating downward in Scratch
2. A workbook with colourful steps on how to assemble the code (useful to laminate and hang in your class)
3. A worksheet for students to help them understand gravity and to synthesize the learning from the coding activity
4. An answer key for the worksheet
5. A step-by-step explanation of what the code does
