The game of scratch
It is interesting to me that this is designed to introduce kids the basics of computer programming. We have talked about how games need to be interesting and help us connect for the game to be productive and successful. Scratch uses colorful blocks as bits and pieces of programming code that will only fit together in a certain way. This helps the kids become more engaged and interested in this. Elementary kids like coloring books and puzzels and scratch incorporates both of those. This helps kids look at scratch as a "fun" game instead of learning, which they are doing. This also teachers kids a very complicated thing in a very fun and simple way. I wish i had been able to experience this when I was younger.
