Yes! There are many options if all or some of your Club participants have completed the "Learn to Code and Change the World" curriculum:
- If your Club focused mainly on unplugged challenges, they can now complete the online challenges - or vice versa.
- Challenge returning members to create even more detailed Scratch projects. You can also use Scratch Challenge Cards (found on the Scratch website) for the returning members to stretch their coding skills.
- Returning members make great mentors for new members! When students explain what they’ve learned to peers, fading memories are reactivated, strengthened, and consolidated. This strategy not only increases retention but also encourages active learning!
- Members can code scenes from their favorite book or activities and share with the whole group!
- Get creative. Inviting a local author to read passages from a book is a great way to inspire these members. It is also a wonderful transition to the fiction curriculum with "The Friendship Code."
- Begin the "The Friendship Code" curriculum! Last year we launched new curriculum for this first book in our fiction series. There are new Scratch tutorials for this book unique to the non-fiction book.
Note: 3rd-5th grade Facilitators will need to access the training materials and get students registered on HQ, which will require a computer. However, computers are not required during 3rd-5th grade Club sessions.
