You can add a button to your project that changes the backdrop.

In this video, you will change the scene behind your logo by switching the backdrop to show environments where animals live or a place in nature you would like to protect.

To start, select some backdrops.

Click “Choose Backdrop from library.”

As you add backdrops, they will show up in the “backdrops” tab.

To remove a backdrop from the list, click the “x.”

Next, add a sprite to act as a button, so people who interact with your project can click it to change backdrops.

Click “Choose Sprite from Library.”

This example uses an arrow, but use any sprite you like as your button.

Next, program the backdrop to change.

Select the “looks” menu.

Then, click, hold, and drag out a “switch backdrop to” block.

From the menu, select “next backdrop” Click the block a few times.

Alright! The backdrop changes with each click.

Next, program this block to run when the sprite is clicked.

From events, add a “when this sprite clicked” block.

Try it out!

Woohoo! Now it’s your turn: Add backdrops to your project.

Add a new sprite.

Add a “when sprite clicked” and “switch backdrop to” block.

Change the value to “next backdrop” Once you finish these steps, return to this page to select another video.
