In this ICT/Computer Science course, students will have to collaborate in teams in order to create a maze game with Scratch. The students are in the 6th grade and they are familiar with the basic of coding with Scratch (conditional statements, looping, moving, event handling, parallel execution, coordination and synchronization, sequence). They will have to imagine their game, write the scenario and rules, choose the heroes and scenes, decide the difficulty level, share it on the Scratch platform, play all the games the teams have created and evaluate them with a specific rubric. All students will receive Certificates of Achievement at the end of this activity and they will have to fulfill some assessment rubrics. Estimated time: 7-9 hours. It's a project that will take place during almost all of the last semester of the 6th Grade ICT class (teaching 1 hour/week). All materials are online and students can complete their tasks at home.
