Create a ball game using Scratch

Updated: Jun 5, 2020

Life’s a game, all you have to do, is know how to play it.” Understanding how the world around us works is what growing up is all about, and teaching kids about the world is a

primary goal. Why not explore a path in which kids find COOL and INTERESTING. This activity will teach kids to develop their own games in an easy to learn and fun way.

Step 1: After logging in, you see your screen as below which has different parameters like:

  1. Code, Costumes, Sounds as basic instructions to kickstart

  2. The left panel as instructions for scripts

  3. The middle panel as code here

  4. The right panel as a canvas area

Step 2: Code comes with different scripts like Motion, Looks, Sound, Events, Control, Sensing, Operation, Variables and My blocks which can be used in creating any game

Step 3: One can choose different sprites and different backdrops based on your interest

Step 4: Below are the codes for blue ball sprites which can be done simply by drag and drop process:

To position your sprite

To count scores and pop sound

Step 5: Similarly, we can create as many sprites we want, as in for our game we will use the same code for yellow and green balls

Step 6: We can create catching sprite as a bowl or gloves or bags. Below is the code for this:

Step 7: Add score counter from variables to see your score

Step 8: Finally, time to play the game and score high

Step 9: Just hit the green flag to start the game

Step 10: Hit the red button to stop the game

Learning Opportunity:

  • Motivating kids to learn how games are created is immeasurably easier by this drag and drop and visually pleasing developments which are made available to us

  • Playing games is a surefire way to engage students, but making games can be just as absorbing

  • Game design and development build art, math, and coding skills, and offers students an outlet to show what they know and what they aspire for in future
