Creating a "Scratch Group" consisting of Four 9-year olds....

Hi Everyone,

My son and I are new to scratch. He LOVED doing the tutorial, and playing with scratch. I thought that it might be fun to start a group with three of his friends. I have a computer science background, but I'm not sure how to structure things. I was thinking about having the kids meet once a week, where I would have small projects for them to do for the first few weeks, and then have them scope out a large project where they can collaborate to get it done.

Some of the questions I have: how do I structure the meetings? Should each kid have their own computer? Are there some project ideas that are better than others, given that the boys are really into legos and minecraft?

Any suggestions on the best way to do this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
–Liz.

Hmm…
Maybe you could make an account where they all know the password, and they could work on their projects there? Minecraft is kind of hard to make on Scratch, but a lego game could be easy.

You could do a lego thing. I would give each kid their own computer to borrow for the project, because im a few years older than them, and im still grabby! You have some great ideas about the
Egos and minecraft. A really simple version of minecraft can be really easy to make, so that could be an idea for a larger project.

See some of my awesome projects!

Oh and also, I would have each kid have their own accounts, because you cant log in on multiple accounts at the same time.
