Educational Potential
The sailor Fiete is wandering and meeting animals during his journey. Every time he mets a group of animals he has to choose one which is not suiting the group. So children learn to differ groups and make simple choices.

At the same time children see different animals along the game and learn about the variety of nature.
Learning Object / Suggested activities with students
Playing the game together with an educator. Each time an animal is chosen to be excluded from a group a picture of the animal is pinned to the wall (or pinboard). Together the children try to find new groups from those animals.
