Adventure on the High Seas

In this activity, students animate an ocean wave to create a setting, then tell a story that takes place on the high seas. This activity introduces students to computer science and the programming language Scratch. It is appropriate for students ages 8-13 and takes 40-75 minutes to run. To use this activity for more than one class, create a club so students can save their Scratch projects ( When returning to the activity, students should go to and navigate to the last video they watched.
