One of the children in the group came up with a solution to what we were exploring. The solution was very close to what I first came up with in My Original Blog. Coincidentally, that night, I was reading a blog called ‘Applying the Linus Torvalds “Good Taste” Coding Requirement‘. It made me go back and examine my solution and explore other options in Scratch.
My next solution got rid of all of the conditional ‘If Then’ statements and utilised lists, instead. I wouldn’t expect any of the children to come up with this solution but it has certainly been an interesting exercise for me as I explore Scratch, as well!
I’ve shared the code here.
