Using Loops in Scratch

Today, I want to introduce a new function. REPEAT. This is also known as a LOOP. Loops are great when you need something to happen over and over again.

Conditional Statements in scratch

Today, I want to introduce a second kind of statement, the IF THEN statement. These use Boolean logic, determine IF a statement is true or false and THEN do something like execute a command.
