Movement and “Rooms” in Scratch

Like with my previous post, I thought it would be helpful to answer a common question I get from students by way of a tutorial. In this case, the question is how to have a character appear to move from one room to another. In the video below (since Scratch is all drag and drop, I thought it would be easiest to convey this in video form), I accomplish this with a sprite and background changes on the stage. I use a broadcast to communicate between the two. As with most software, there are probably other ways to accomplish this, but I found that this works pretty well. If you have any suggestions or better solutions, please post a comment.
