Worksheet Overview

In this activity you need to be a good spotter, so let’s focus! Are you ready?  



Which is the odd one out of these words?

Milk   Water    Orange Juice   Teddy Bear


Did you say teddy bear?


This is because all of the others words are types of drinks and the word teddy bear is something you cuddle not drink!


Let’s try another:

Which word would be the odd one out here?

Roar   Moo   Shake   Cluck


Did you say shake?

This is because all the other words are sounds that animals make.

Here is a list of animals and the sounds that they make:

 Animal  Sound
  Hen    Cluck
  Horse   Neigh
  Sheep    Bleat
  Pig    Grunt
  Cow    Moo
  Lion    Roar


Can you try and make these noises? It might help you to remember them!


Let’s try one more:

Which word is the odd one out?

Star  Carrot  Moon   Earth


Did you say carrot?



This is because all the other words are a part of our Solar System.


Now, it’s time for you to track down the odd words out! Good luck!
