Welcome back to the biggest party on the Internet

Hi kids!
It was great to see everyone back again in our English classroom so let's celebrate our back to this blog  with The biggest party on the Internet by Magnum Pleasure Hunt.
In this game you must control a character to move around various websites. If the girl heats a gold balloon, another character appears behind her to dance the conga-line.
It's a great fun!

Animated stories using Hopscotch, Coding for Kids

Hi guys! 
Here you are your animated story using Hopscotch turned into a cartoon video.
Well done! You are very good coders but  excellent actors too!

Your animation has all the elements of a good story:

  •  There is a narrator and there are some dialogues
  •  There is a setting: Where and When the story takes place. 
  •  There are heroes and villains, main characters and supporting characters, protagonists and antagonists... 
  •  There is a plot that is all the action that takes place during the story. 
  •  There is a conflict: the robbers try to escape from the police but the hero stops them. 
  •  There is a climax: the villains are defeated and Pod saves Hopscotch City. 
  •  There is a resolution: Hopscotch characters go out and celebrate the victory. Everybody is happy. It's a happy-ending.

Kids react to old computers!

Hi, guys! 
Have you ever seen an old computer like this one on the video? Have you ever heard about old floppy disks?
Check it out on this hilarious video: "Kids react to Old Computers" 
The kids are 6 to 13 years old and they discover one by one a huge and old Apple computer. A computer before the Internet Era!

Before the Internet even existed?!
One of the kids asks: " How do I look up for homework? 
"Go to the library" - The man behind the camera says.
Pretty funny, isn't it?

Enjoy it!
