To borrow Seymour Papert’s words, Scratch is a great tool to think through. This Scratch project will guide learners (teachers or students) to break down patterns and make some interesting art.

Go to this project and run the code by clicking the green flag. Then go inside the project and see how each pattern is created. Tinker with the code, changing the parameters for the blocks and look at the resulting designs.

Then make your own designs, either by duplicating a sprite and adjusting the code, or by creating your own.

How can this project be used? It is low-risk introduction to Scratch using the idea of a platform project.
