At ANOHA, children can experience the story of Noah’s Ark with all their senses. Letters of the alphabet turn into raindrops, and words turn into puddles that they can splash around in – until everything is submerged by the Great Flood. Imaginatively sculpted animals, large and small, have found their way onto the enormous wooden Ark. But how will they all get along?

In this four-day program during school vacation, children will learn about a variety of storytelling techniques and sample the art of creative writing. Next, the children will each get their feet wet with their own literary texts about the story of Noah’s Ark and even design a book to go with it. On the last day, the budding writers will present their books and stories to parents and friends.

The vacation workshop offers a varied program with fun and games as well as freshly cooked vegetarian lunch each day.

Day 1: Eventful immersion in the Noah’s Ark story and a chance to see a real Torah scroll in the Jewish Museum Berlin’s core exhibition

Day 2: How, where, why, and what: Storytelling techniques

Day 3: Writing and designing a story: The story as a book

Day 4: Book presentation and discussion with the budding writers
