Canvas… what next

Yesterday, I was just going to do animation with canvas, and then handle events today with a game loop. Instead, I jumped straight ahead so that the assignment was more fun. They made it so they could fly a UFO around the screen. This leaves me unsure of what to do tomorrow. Particle generation, as I had once planned for Wednesday? Sprites? I guess this wouldn’t be an issue if I was planning to have them work on the exercise for the entire class. These topics are complex. But I want to leave enough time to work on projects. So, I somehow have to simplify things without making it too simple. I wish I could just skip to a game framework. I am stress-eating candy.
