This article is about projects made by Scratchers to teach new users how to use something. For projects made by the Scratch Team, see Starter Projects.

A Tutorial Project is a type of project in Scratch that is designed to teach users how to perform a task or how to do something. Tutorials also may contain pre-made scripts or "templates" to help users create their own similar projects.

Some tutorials focus on things inside of Scratch, while others may be focused on things outside of Scratch, for example: different languages (examples) and DIY (examples). The Scratch Design Studio has done two tutorial themes. The studios are viewable here and here.

Scratch Resources allowed tutorials to be uploaded as resources.
