MTBoS Love - Which One Doesn't Belong
*singing* One of these things is not like the others. One of these things just doesn't belong...
Which One Doesn't Belong is a fairly new resources. As usual, I stumbled upon this jem while catching up on tweets one day. I use these as warm-ups about once per week in my 9-12 classroom. I am not concerned that the topic we are studying is represented in the set, but rather that students think of multiple solutions. That is my favorite part of using these sets. I encourage students to come up with a reason why any of the 4 pictures could be the one that doesn't belong.
I love that there is often an obvious solution so all students can find success but there are multiple answers for students who are ready to think more deeply. I have not tried the incomplete sets yet, but I think those would be awesome for higher order thinking skills as would making up your own WODB set.
