Welcome to the flip side of categorization…category exclusion! Students need to know more than just what belongs in a category, but what doesn’t belong and why. These picture cards and sentence fill-ins are great for working on category exclusion with your students.
With the picture cards, your students identify and mark the item that doesn’t belong with the other three pictures. The sentence fill-ins take it one step further by having students not only mark the item that doesn’t belong, but also by filling-in the blanks to explain why. For example, “The tomato doesn’t belong because the other items are all desserts.”
Included are 18 picture cards and 16 sentence fill-ins. They come in color and black & white versions and can be cut apart or used as worksheets.
