Many doodles tell a story by
making letters interact with each other.
In this video, you will make sprites
talk to each other to tell a story with your logo.
To start, select a sprite to start talking.
This example uses the letter G,
but select any sprite you'd like.
Then, select the looks menu.
Click, hold, and drag out a say for two seconds block.
Click the block to see what it does.
All right, the sprite says, "hello."
Change the text in the block to
what you would like the sprite to say.
This example uses, "Do you have any plans this weekend?"
But use the words that work best for your story.
Next, add an event to tell the
computer when to run this code.
Select the events menu and drag
out a when flagged clicked block.
This block runs the code when you click
the flag at the top of the stage, try it out.
All right, next, continue your story
by making another sprite say something.
Select a sprite.
Select the looks menu,
and add another say for two seconds block.
Change the text to what you'd like the sprite to say.
It might answer a question the first
sprite asked or respond to what it said.
In this example the sprite responds with, "No."
To run this code when the flag is clicked,
add a when flag clicked block.
Click the flag to try it out.
Both sprites talk, but they talk at the same time.
To change this, program one sprite to
wait while the first one talks.
Select the control menu.
Drag out a wait block, and place it before
the say for two seconds block that
makes the second sprite talk.
Each sprite talks for two seconds,
so change the value in the wait block to two.
All right, build out your story with more
say for two seconds and wait blocks.
Test your program often to make
sure it's working how you intend.
Now it's your turn, select a sprite to begin talking.
Add a say for two seconds and when flag clicked block.
Select a second sprite to talk
and add a when flag clicked,
wait, and say for two seconds block.
Continue to add say ... and wait blocks
to make your sprites talk to each
other and continue your story.
Once you finish these steps, return
