Traffic Jam Activity
The student is presented with a line of people, separated into two equal groups, one on the left and one on the right. The objective of the student is then to move all the people from one side of the screen to the other. An empty space in the middle can be used to move one person into it. One person can jump over another person, but only over one other, and only if there is an empty space at their destination.
Click on a person to move them into the empty space, if possible. The move can be made if the person is immediately next to the empty space or just one person from it.
