Extra game information

This panel was created by StreetSmart Wheels partner Jugendamt Stadt Düsseldorf.

The panel depicts the Hermann square in Düsseldorf, where the team used to work with the mobile school. On the panel, different people of different cultures are visible, portrayed with both typical and untypical gender characteristics.


  • What happens next? The children choose a situation and talk about what happens next.
  • News show (in puppetry window): One of the children is the Mobile School reporter & asks the other children questions about what's happening on the panel.
  • Life story: The children choose one of the people on the panel & invent his/her life story.
