PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Use this activity to stimulate students’ research skills.

In this 3-page, printable activity, students examine a group of four people, places or things. Three of the four have something in common; however, one “interloper” has wormed into the group.

Students circle the interloper and explain why that particular person, place, or thing does not belong.

Some of the answers are easy, and some require that students use research to find the difference.

Example: George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Calvin Coolidge, Joe Biden
Difference: ____________________________________________________
Answer: Students would circle Joe Biden and note the difference is that Washington, Lincoln, and Coolidge were president and Biden is vice-president.

Example: incisor, wagon, canine, bicuspid
Difference: _____________________________________________________
Answer: Students would circle wagon and note the difference is that incisor, canine, and bicuspid are all types of teeth and wagon is not.

This classroom-tested activity is suitable for middle school and high school classes. Created by Susan Thurman.
