In Some Ways We Are Different
Strategy "In some ways we are different, but in so many ways we are the same."
 

Daniel Tiger and Miss Elaina arrive at the castle to play with Prince Wednesday. Prince Wednesday's cousin Chrissie is visiting and everyone joins together playing knights and dragons. When they realize that Chrissie uses crutches to walk, Daniel and Miss Elaina are curious. Chrissie explains that the braces help her walk before Queen Sara reminds the children that "in some ways [they] are different, but in so many ways [they] are the same."

Prince Wednesday pretends to be a dragon and is chased by his friends. Chrissie explains to Daniel that in some ways she cannot play the same way as he can -- but she still likes to play.

Daniel make-believes that he is a knight riding a real horse before Chrissie shares that she also enjoys riding horses. In a similar way, Daniel likes to ride on his dad's back when he pretends to be a horse.

As the children continue playing, Chrissie reminds the others that she does not need to stop, she just needs to play differently sometimes. Daniel likes playing with Chrissie!
