Bossy Finch

This activity was created by Dianne O'Grady-Cunniff of Charles County Public Schools.

The Finch is small, but it can be very bossy. Write a program that lets the Finch command the user. Your program should make the Finch do these things:

  1. Say "I want to see the ceiling please."
  2. Make a short, high buzz until its beak is up.
  3. Say "Please point me down to the ground."
  4. Make a short, low buzz until the beak is down.
  5. Say "Thank you."

Hint: You will need to use the repeat until block (Control menu). This block contains a space for a Boolean block. The blocks inside the repeat until block will be repeated until the Boolean block is true.
