In this video, you will create a title slide that tells your audience what your presentation is about!

You’ll also add a character or object to be your narrator.

They will “present” information to your audience.

You can pause the video to add to your project, or you can watch the entire video, then complete the steps.

To start, open the starter project.

This will open Scratch in another tab.

Then, decide what your presentation will be about.

Maybe your topic will be a place you’d like to visit, something you’re learning in school, Or something you care about.

In Scratch, you can create “slides” about anything you want.

Once you know your topic, make your title slide.

To do this, click on the stage, then the Backdrops tab.

Click the text button, and type a title.

Create a title you like and that fits your topic.

It might be funny, serious, simple, or creative.

Great!

Next, add a character or object to be your narrator and present about your topic.

In Scratch, characters and objects are called Sprites.

Click the “choose a sprite” button to add one to your presentation.

There are many to choose from!

To make your sprite face another direction, go to the costume editor, and select “flip horizontal.”

Move the Sprite to where you want on the stage.

Next, program the sprite to talk.

Drag out three “Say for 2 Seconds” blocks from the Looks menu and connect them.

When you click the block stack, the sprite says “hello!”

Type new text in the blocks to make the sprite talk about your presentation topic.

Click on the block stack to test it out.

Tinker with the values if your narrator speaks too quickly.

Now when you click the block stack, your sprite “says” the things you typed.

Awesome.

Finally, click the Events menu and add a “when flag clicked” event to the top of your block stack.

Now you can use the flag like a play button to run your code.

After you’ve introduced your topic, come back to this page to check out more ways to add to your presentation.
