Tell a Joke

In this fun storytelling project, you'll use code to make two birds tell each other a joke.

Activity Details

What's the best joke you know? You can choose two characters, then program your characters to tell each other the joke. You can even add sound effects and make the characters react to the punch-line!

Teacher Notes

Students learn the basics that they'll need to create storytelling projects in Tynker. When they're done with this project, encourage them to program their own joke or story.
