Add energy to your characters by animating their appearance.
Your characters can move in different ways to show how they feel,
or do a dance!
How a character moves expresses how you feel
about something you care about, and it helps others share that mood.
In Scratch, you can change a sprite’s appearance or “costume” to animate it.
Select a character to animate. This example uses the main character. Click the “costumes”
tab. Your sprite may already have other costumes you can program.
If you don’t see a costume, create your own! Right click a costume and click duplicate.
Explore the editor tools to create a new look for your character.
Use the “next costume” block and a “repeat” loop to program your animation.
Whoooaa! Slow down your animation by adding a “wait”
block inside the “repeat” loop.
Add a “when this sprite clicked” event to the top of this code stack.
This looks great! Consider adding similar code to other sprites in your project.
For a challenge, use the “switch costume” blocks between the “say” blocks to make
your sprite react to what is being said.
Make two characters talk to one another about the issue you’ve chosen.
Program confetti, snow, hearts, or other objects to fall from the sky.
