Scratch: Art of shape and patterns
Please find enlosed a list of instructions (algorthms) that enable you to create shapes and patterns using Scratch. We have created a video to enable you to have these shapes drawn with a pencil rather than a Scratch Character. We have based these resources on the Logo resources we used to teach so they should look familar.
