Last year, when I taught Algebra 1, I used Which One Doesn’t Belong once a week. It had a ton of potential and students frequently surprised me with their insights and ideas. However, I didn’t have students norm or practice with a low stakes and low math WODB to learn the routine. I made this one today with a much lower bar of entry to find multiple reasons and to find a reason why each doesn’t belong. This way, I can teach students the routine and that they should be finding a reason why each does not belong instead of finding one reason and “being done”.
I’ll be using this during the first week of school in my Algebra 1 course to help set the expectation for every time we do a WODB and build culture. This is my time creating a WODB, so if you have feedback I’d appreciate it 🙂
