Setting the scene
“Today, we’re going to play Mazaam and feed our friends, the sea lions. But we won’t use real food! Instead, we’ll use consonant and dissonant sounds as the ingredients of their meals.”
“Sea lions love to eat algae. And you – what’s your favourite food?” “What are the three meals of the day? What do you like to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner?”
After the activity, introduce the children to new food in a special workshop.
Do module 014 – The Sea Lions’ Lullaby.
Play the second game in the Mazaam app’s World of Sea Lions module with the children.
