This is a fantastic activity to get your students thinking, categorizing, and making a persuasive argument—all while learning about animals.
Ask students to study the four images and decide which one doesn't belong. Each of these image groupings has been carefully designed so that a valid argument could be made for any one of the four images. Allow students to think critically and make a case. Students enjoy the activity and it serves as important practice in problem-solving skills. This kind of logical thinking is important in many careers--including STEM. If you are familiar with the game SET, the thinking process involved here is somewhat similar.
Use these as sentence starters or prompts for persuasive writing or as fun brain teasers (with no wrong answers!) any time you have a few extra minutes with your students.
No prep is needed--just print (or project) and go! This is great for remote learning and distance learning as well as a bell ringers, warm ups or morning work.
