Which item does not fit with the others? Recognizing similarities and differences is creative fun with this anytime game using Crayola® Dry-Erase Crayons.
Invite students to discuss the ideas of sets of items that belong together. While three items may share a characteristic or belong to the same group, a fourth item may not share that same characteristic. Or that fourth item may belong to a different group. Provide an example of this, such as shark, whale, dolphin, horse. Discuss which three share a characteristic. To what group could three of these animals belong? Which animal does not belong (or could be called the “Odd One Out”)? Why?
Ask children to create their own Odd One Out game boards. Model how to divide an individual dry-erase board using a Dry-Erase Crayon to draw vertical and horizontal lines down and across the center of the board.
Children to draw and/or write three living things that belong together and one that would be the “Odd One Out”.
Children can share their drawings with the entire group or work with partners to elicit guesses as to which living thing is the “Odd One Out”. Guessers or artists might even erase the odd one, leaving the three that belong together. Encourage children to describe how the three living things are alike and why the fourth is not in that group.
