Have students create a reset script and it store in their Scratch backpack so they can use in the future to set the Stage back to a uniform starting point.

  • Here’s an example reset Script:
  • when (space) key pressed: pen up; clear; go to x: (0) y: (0); point in direction (90)
  • Reset scripts are particularly useful for projects that involve drawing or plays.
    • Rather than manually resetting the sprites and removing pen drawings, students can have their reset script do it for them.
  • Students must be logged into an account use the backpack feature in Scratch.
  • Check out Collen’s YouTube video Save as a Copy that introduces the Scratch backpack and the menu option "File->Save as a copy"!
