In this video, you'll create a program in which a character describes five things about your friendship.

If you haven't already found someone to create your project for, ask about working with another student.

Each friend should create their own project for this activity.

To start, click on the Five Things About Us starter project linked next to this video.

This will open Scratch in a new tab in your browser.

Sign into Scratch using the sign-in information from your CS First passport, then click the remix button.

Next, choose an android to represent you.

Click the costume tab and select your android.

Then, program this android to describe something about you and your friend.

Click the Scripts tab, then the Looks menu, and drag out A Say For Two Seconds block.

Click the block to test it.

Cool!

Type in this block, 'My friend and I have five things in common.' Next, add another Say For Two Seconds block and type the first description of your friendship.

You might want to talk about how you met, common interests and hobbies like sports, television, music, or what makes a person a good friend.

Click this block to run it.

Great!

The android's write talks about your friendship.

Next, continue to describe your friendship with as many Say blocks as you like.

Share what you're writing with your friend as you create, or wait until it's done to reveal it.

It's up to you!

Once you have a list of Say For Two Seconds blocks describing your friendship, add a When Flagged Click block from the Events menu to run this code-stack when the flag is clicked.

Click the flag to test.

Awesome!

Now it's your turn.

Click the starter project link next to this video and sign in using the information from your passport.

Click remix, use Say For Two Seconds blocks to describe your friendship.

Then, add a When Flagged Click block to run the code.

Before moving onto the add-on, take a moment to make sure you are signed in to the CS First website with the username and password from your passport.

If you are not signed in, you won't receive a digital badge for completing this activity, so be sure to sign in.
