This is fun exercise that helps students practice Higher Order Thinking Skills as they work in small groups to classify items into general and specific categories.
Students will examine ten groups of four items and determine into which general category they fit. Then, they will determine which item is different in some way from the other three and remove it. What remains will be a specific category that they will identify.
Charlene Tess used this exercise on one of the days before Thanksgiving to give her students' minds a workout and to celebrate the holiday.
I hope you and your students enjoy using this. Here's another lesson your students will enjoy.
