Worksheet Overview

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


In the following set of words, two of the words do not relate to the other three. Which are the two odd words out?

Rose   Tulip    Pink   Daffodil    Grass


The odd words are pink and grass.

This is because rose, tulip and daffodil are all types of flower.


Let’s try another:

Which two words are not related to the other three here?

Lamb   Sow    Leveret    Mouse    Duckling



The two odd words are sow and mouse.

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




Here is a list of animals and the name for their young:

 Animal  Young
 Bear  Cub
 Goat  Kid
 Pig  Piglet
 Deer  Fawn
 Hare  Leveret
Cow  Calf
 Swan  Cygnet
 Eagle  Eaglet
 Goose  Gosling
 Horse  Foal
 Duck  Duckling


Make sure that you make a note of any new words.


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