For our service-learning project, we set up a faux roadway intersection, with a road made of a black tablecloth, and a working toy traffic light. Volunteers wore images of cars and represented traffic, while others had to apply the safety rules that were taught in order to cross the road safely. Red light-Green light was also played. It reiterated the meaning of traffic signals in a fun interactive activity after correctly crossing the “street.”
