After Chapter 1 , you should feel comfortable navigating the Scratch interface. In this chapter, you’ll use that interface to look more closely at sprites and backdrops. Sprites and backdrops are two important types of objects that can perform actions in a project. They follow the instructions that you provide when you snap together the code blocks into a script. Backdrops also function as the background of the stage area. In the sections that follow, you will learn how to add a sprite and a backdrop from the Scratch library. You will also learn how to create your own sprite and backdrop.
