A motion tween is very similar to a shape tween except you are working with a symbol (a grouped collection shapes) instead of a simple shape. Again, if you want different objects moving, it is best to put each object in its own layer.
Worksheet created by Louise Rich-Fiondella (Orange Middle School Computer Teacher) & Carolyn Stanley
On this sheet you will plan out your animation. You will need three layers - a background layer, a layer with a simple shape tween, and a layer with a motion tween of a symbol. On the back of the sheet is an example of how I planned out my animation.
