Lesson plan

Setting the scene

1. Introduce the activity :

“A tornado has forced the lynx to take shelter, leaving their precious toybox behind. Oh no! The tornado has jumbled the toys in the box! Let’s help the lynx sort out their toys.”

Activity

1. Play the third game in the Mazaam app’s World of Lynx with the children.

2. Every time a lynx puts a toy in the box

Hold up the corresponding pictogram (astronaut, cat, dinosaur, etc.) or write the object’s name, type and colour on the board.

3. After helping the lynx tidy everything up, count the number of toys each lynx has.

4. Then, in sub-groups

encourage the children to discover different ways of categorizing objects: by type, colour or kind (animal, human, inanimate), etc.

To go further

Divide the children into small groups and ask them to use the categories they’ve found to reorganize certain classroom areas – for example, the reading corner or the areas for playing on their own or doing crafts.
