Odd One Out -Trees

A starter activity for students to think outside the box. The nature of the starter means that they may not guess the right answer, it is more important that they ask questions and think of possible answers - a really important life skill. Handy to focus students on as they arrive to any lesson or tutor time. Useful to lead into discussions on trees as symbols, how we mark events such as 9/11

A useful starter for Music or Tutor time - keep your students engaged on entry looking for connections between the images. The nature of the Odd One Out starters is to prompt guessing and questioning from the students, so there are no questions on this starter apart from "which is the odd one out?". I find dropping clues in where they get stuck helpful to prompt further looking and guessing. The important thing is not for them to know, or guess the answer but to open up possibilities of thinking for them.

A starter to engage students on entry - looking for clues for connections they can make between the images and learn a bit about Art History along the way. These starters always go down well even with the reluctant participant because they can look and suggest possible answers, and students can get new ideas on approaches for their own projects.
