Drawing Commands

Experiment with Drawing Commands

Experiment with the pieces shown below from the Motion and Pen tabs. Figure out what each one does, use the pieces below to draw a square. To make your character smaller so that it is easier to see where it is drawing, alter the size attribute using blocks located in the Looks tab. Make sure that you select the option for “rotation style” so that the character freely rotates (as seen below).

Blocks Sprite Palette

Use commands to show the direction, x position, and y position of the character on the screen when the program runs. Remember, in the Motion tab you can select these to be shown on the stage (as shown below).
