In this add-on, you will add an object related to the story.

This is a challenge add-on.

This video will help you get started, then you will figure out the rest of the steps on your own.

To get started, decide what kind of object to use in your project.

Use an object from the sprite library, upload an image from your computer, or draw your own.

This example uses a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Next, broadcast the message to tell the prop to appear.

In this example, the message is broadcast from the Isabel talk sprite when Isabel says that they are having peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Click the flag to test.

Great, animate the prop when it receives the message to appear.

In this example when the peanut butter and jelly sandwich sprite receives the message PBJ, it shows, then repeatedly turns back and forth before disappearing.

Make the sprite do whatever you'd like.

To make the sprite hide until it receives the broadcast message, add when flag clicked and hide blocks.

Now it's your turn.

Add an object related to your story, broadcast the message to make the object appear, program the object to receive that message, show, then animate.
