THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Problem Solver Daniel

Episode 205
Title Daniel Fixes Trolley
Problem Solver Daniel
Air Date August 20, 2014
 

Daniel Tiger is at school playing with a toy train while Miss Elaina plays with a toy astronaut. When they decide to play blocks together, they disagree on what to build -- a train or a space ship. Seeking help from Teacher Harriet, they are encouraged to solve the problem themselves. Putting their heads together, Daniel and Miss Elaina decide to build a space train!

Daniel make-believes that he is traveling through outer space on a real space train.

Prince Wednesday joins Daniel and Miss Elaina and they find a green jacket perfect for pretending to be a space alien. When Prince Wednesday and Daniel cannot agree on who gets to wear the jacket, Miss Elaina reminds them that they can solve the problem without Teacher Harriet's help. They decide to wear the jacket together and pretend to be a four-legged alien.


Strategy

  • "Try to solve the problem yourself and you'll feel proud."
