How to code an Autumn leaf catching game
Goodbye summer, hello a brand new academic year. We know you’ve got plenty on your plate already with new pupils and all of the many other changes a new year brings. Make your computing lessons easier this term and use our free coding lesson: an autumnal themed falling leaf game for pupils aged 7-11 using Scratch.
Each term, I create free (seasonal) computing lessons, and I’ve written another step-by-step lesson plan and some teacher/pupil computing resources that I’m using in my computing classes and am adding to iCompute this Autumn.
Autumn is here and catching a falling leaf before it hits the ground means you get one happy day! Challenge your pupils to program sprites to catch falling autumn leaves. Catch ten and program something awesome to happen any way they know how to!
Ideas for differentiation, extension and enrichment are included in the lesson plan. Plus program templates and partially-written programs for teacher and pupil support. Lots of opportunities to be inspired and get creative!
