Primary Resources

These lesson plans introduce primary level students to Scratch (Ages 4-12 in Ireland). The materials include step by step lesson plans and activities which will allow students to create interactive stories, animations, games, music and art and share their creations on the web. At the same time, students will develop their problem-solving, communication and reasoning skills.

These 10 lesson plans have been developed for primary level students. Each lesson takes approximately 30-45 minutes and has links to the primary school curriculum.

Primary teachers may request a free classroom pack at www.ics-skills.ie/scratch
