Goldilocks and the Three Bears: A Scratch Project

Here is a Scratch project that my child and I have been working on recently:  Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Based on the familiar fairy tale, the idea was to use event handlers to create an interactive version of the story. 

Flappy Bird in code.org is a favorite with my child and has been a great intro to event handlers (and it's been the same story with all of my students...). As a follow-up to Flappy, this fun depiction of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" allows you to interact with the story by clicking on multiple sprites. This was intended to provide more practice with the concept of event handling. In addition, it focuses on timing, and coordinating multiple actions via message passing between the sprites.

To make the story more interesting, we also did transitions among the backgrounds, and worked on showing/hiding sprites as required in various parts of the story. Creating the sprites and the backgrounds was definitely fun; copying a single sprite and tweaking it to produce multiple characters was something new for the kid as well.

Hope you enjoy the story! Let us know your comments!
