Threshold Concepts: Code (using scratch)
Motion: Set IF conditions for movements. Specify types of rotation giving the number of degrees.
Looks: Change the position of objects between screen layers (send to back, bring to front).
Sound: Upload sounds from a file and edit them. Add effects such as fade in and out and control their implementation.
Draw: Combine the use of pens with movement to create interesting effects.
Events: Set events to control other events by 'broadcasting' information as a trigger.
Control: Use IF THEN ELSE conditions to control events or objects.
Sensing: Use a range of sensing tools (including proximity, user inputs, loudness and mouse position) to control events or actions.
Variables and Lists: Use lists to create a set of variables.
Operators: Use the Boolean operators
() < ()
() = ()
() > ()
to define conditions.

() * ()
() / ()
to perform calculations.
