The turn () degrees blocks are two Motion blocks and stack blocks. The blocks change their sprite's direction by the specified amount of degrees in the direction indicated. The blocks support any input value from -179 to 180.
The Turn Right () Degrees block was known as "turn ()" in Scratch 14Feb04, before being renamed to "turn right ()" in Scratch 13Oct04, then to "turn () degrees" in Scratch 28Feb05, then to "turn right () degrees" in Scratch 28May05.
These blocks are commonly used for repeatedly rotating a sprite.
Some common uses for the blocks are:
- Simple rotation — e.g. planets and wheels
forever turn left (15) degrees end
forever turn right (15) degrees end
- Animation (e.g. a waving hand)
repeat (5) turn right (15) degrees end repeat (5) turn left (15) degrees end
- Vehicles that can turn
forever if <key (left arrow v) pressed?> then turn left (3) degrees end if <key (right arrow v) pressed?> then turn right (3) degrees end

The blocks can be replicated by manually setting direction using their values:
point in direction ( ( direction ) - ( amount ) )
