Thanksgiving Fun

Thanksgiving Fun

Scratch is a website dedicated to teaching young people how to program interactive games and stories. The website and programming language was designed by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Currently there are more than 8.7 million users registered on the website.

Recently, Scratch user coachmalone, a fifth-grader from Cincinnati, reached out to us asking to make a game for Thanksgiving. We thought this was a great idea. To help make the game more realistic, we shared real x-rays and real x-ray sounds with him. We hope you have fun taking x-rays of these Thanksgiving treats.

To play the game, press the green flag and then follow Tom the Turkey’s directions. Unfortunately, you will not be able to play this game on your mobile device.
