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?

Purple  Puppy    Orange   Pink


Did you say puppy?


Labrador Puppy

This is because all of the others are colours and the word puppy is not a colour.


Let’s try another:

Which word would be the odd one out here?

Growl  Oink   Toe   Bleat


Did you say toe?

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
 Bear Brown Bear  Growl
 Horse Horse with saddle  Neigh
 Sheep Sheep  Bleat
 Cow   Moo

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?

Duckling   Kitten   Lamb   Adult


Did you say, adult?

This is because all the other words are the names for baby animals.


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