What you will be learning in this Lesson?

In the above Scratch Activity you will be exploring the below concepts in detail

Sprite Movement



In this game you should be able to move the bowl left and right in order to catch the falling fruits.

The bowl will be controlled by the keyboard arrow keys



A loop makes a statement/block to run multiple times. In Scratch, any block whose label begins with a “forever” or a “repeat” is used to make a loop.

For this project, we will be using loops to make the fruits fall forever until the timer runs out.

Creating a timer


We will create a timer that starts from a certain time (like 20 seconds) and countdowns to 0. Once it reaches 0 the game is over.
