Using ‘Odd One Out’ for specific curriculum areas

A bag full of beach-related items

A great feature of the game Odd One Out is that is can be used with specific curriculum areas, themes or projects.

For example, a Reception teacher I was working with decided to collect some objects related to her Summer term theme, the beach. She filled a basket with sunglasses, towel, bat and ball, frisbee, sun cream, sun hat, spade, water bottle, reading book, shells, driftwood etc. Every day the class played this oracy game for five minutes, picking out objects from the basket.

You’ll be able to think of many more examples related to English, History, Science and so on.
