The play mittendabei (Onboard for the Ride) tells the story of an animal that is saved by a ship during a storm. Once onboard it meets other animals for the first time. It compares, is compared and encounters interest as well as rejection.
The story provides an opportunity to talk about being in a new environment, such as settling into preschool, and the questions this raises, like “Who is allowed to play with us?” It also shows how, despite all our differences, we can learn to value each other and live together. The play ends with a fun interactive component in which the children contribute to a happy ending for the story. We provide supplementary pedagogical material for follow-up use.
The portable play was designed especially for childcare facilities and requires minimal on-site organization.
