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?

Road   Path   Track   Comb

Hair Comb


Did you say comb?

This is because all of the others are types of route or places you can walk, whereas the word comb is not.


Let’s try another:

Which word would be the odd one out here?

neigh   purr   nod   bleat


Did you say nod?

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
 Seal Seal  Bark
 Chicken Chicken  Cluck
 Donkey Donkey  Bray
 Monkey Bonobo Monkey  Chatter


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?

Knife   Jam   Marmalade   Butter


Did you say knife?

This is because all the other words are the names of things you can spread on toast.


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