What doesn’t belong (Sorting and Analyzing) has 10 printable pages to improve analysis and reasoning skills. Students analyze dinosaurs, dragons, robots, monsters, zombies, birds, honeybees, musicians, ants, and bugs to find the thing (or things) that do not belong, like:
One monster does NOT belong: It has no arms or legs.
Another zombie does NOT belong: It just wants to hug you.
Several dinosaurs do NOT belong: They think that they are too good to walk.
One robot does NOT belong: It is too smart for the others.
One ant does NOT belong: It keeps tripping over untied shoelaces.
Another dragon does NOT belong: It loves everyone, herbivores and carnivores alike.
Use these pages as a sponge activity or at a math center for early finishers, for homework or extra credit, at the beginning of the year or right before the summer. Critical thinking has never been more important. Take a look at the Preview to see a few pages from this packet.
