This week we'll being doing a little mini-project that involves scratch.  Some of you may have done this before.  At first glance it look like something for kids, but you can get pretty advanced with it.
1)  Visit the official site, and sign up.  Try out the dancing cat tutorial.  It will probably take you < 15 minutes.
2)  Try out these examples called "Scratch Cards".  You don't need to print/fold/glue them, but if you want to do that at home go ahead.
3) Do this tutorial over the "pong" game.  
4)  Create your own game in Scratch.

What's for a grade?  Next Monday, you'll show me your own game.  You should be customizing it somehow.  If you've already done something like this, then try something a little more advanced.  Your game should be something that reflects several hours of work to get at least a 70.

I've just started grading the HTML project 3.  It's a test grade.  About a dozen of you didn't turn it in.  Several of you need to resubmit because you did not put all your website files in a zip file.  I even had someone turn in a single .txt file.
