Coding Music with Scratch Lesson Plans

Five step-by-step lesson plans focusing on connecting youth interest in music to Scratch activities. Activities include creating a DJ mix, writing a song, and developing an animated dance routine.

These lessons are thorough and include time frames for each part of an activity as well as vocabulary to highlight with participating youth, and screenshots of what to look for in Scratch. Library staff can easily use these lessons as is or adapt them for other types of Scratch making activities.
