I found an app called "fast traffic". It is an intersection with cars crossing from all four legs. The idea is to make sure that the cars cross without colliding. I have used the app as an incentive after a long lesson. The students get a "bird's eye view" of the intersection and have to make cars stop, speed up, slow down, etc. It is a game that is educational in the context of orientation and mobility. It does a nice job of simulating what would happen if an intersection had no control (stop signs, lights, yields, etc.). Check it out!
