How to draw a circle in Scratch
If you saw my 9-block program to draw a polygon in Scratch, you might be wondering how to draw a circle in Scratch.
The answer is to think of a circle as a shape with 360 sides, and 360 angles of 1 degree, like this:
When using the polygon program, you might have noticed that the more sides you have, the more like a circle it looks. In practice, you don't need as many as 360 sides to make it look like a circle on the Scratch screen. You can have 90 sides, move 4 steps, and turn 4 degrees to create a circle more quickly, for example.
To increase the size of the circle, change the number of steps the sprite moves.
