In this article I am dealing with an informatics contest called Bebras, in Slovak "iBobor". This competition focuses on elementary and secondary school students. In the school year 2011/12 a new competition category called "Bobrík" appeared in Slovakia for the 3rd and 4th class elementary school pupils.
Since 2008, when a school reform took place, Informatics has been a compulsory subject from the 2nd class of elementary schools in Slovakia. However there is still a lack of teaching materials. In my article I am offering some lesson plans in details. The aim of this article is to introduce to the teachers how to make use of some competition tasks appearing in previous years´ iBobor. Particular lessons focused on the thematic sphere Problem-solving and algorithmic thinking.

Keywords: Bebras Contest, Elementary Informatics in Primary Education, Algorithmic thinking
