This SmartBoard activity created by Heather Bates, SLP was designed to improve students understanding of verbal reasoning tasks and categorization along with increasing their vocabulary in the area of animals. There are 20 slides in which students have to name the 4 given animals on each slide and then move the red X over the animal that does not belong with the given group. Then they should tell why the animal does not belong with the other animals. If you don't have a SmartBoard you can copy and laminate each slide to use during small group work with your students. Your students will enjoy the color clip art from Pink Cat Studio. The borders are from www.mycutegraphics.com. Please do not remove any clip art from this activity for your own personal use.
