Title: Odd-One-Out game
Post by: alexteacherkorea on November 25, 2016, 06:50:56 pm
My ellies love this one (middles too!)

It's essentially "describe a property that one person/thing has that the others don't." I have kids overstay 5+ minutes just to play it. Plan for ~5 minutes per round.

ONLY if you have them in teams, though! That's the key thing. I also give a point to kids who are not so good at English if they try. So if a kid says "Dahyun... girl." and he normally says nothing, that's as valuable as the smart kid who says "Pikahu has a tail."

Anyway, here are a few to use. Feedback is most welcome.

Holy crap -- my 5th grade after-school students ADORED this. Pretty much jumping out of their seats to raise their hand lol, including the lowest level student. And good advice to give points based on trying - really promotes all levels of students a chance to talk. Thanks for sharing Alex Teacher!! :)

Worked for me, got to press the free slow download button, but make sure you can see the file size (2.7m)posted on that page to know you're on the right download.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks a lot Alex! For my classes, I decided to make some changes but kept your framework. I also made a little bit easier one for my lowest levels. I used it in a number of different after school classes at different schools and the results were all positive to fantastic.

The best thing about this (type of) game for me is that it is broad, can be adapted for different levels, and is all about getting students to speak whatever English they can. I am looking for other ideas for activities that are similar in these regards, so if anyone has or knows of them I would love to see. Thanks!

I have attached the versions I used in class if anyone wants to take a look.

Thanks a lot for the feedback!

It's essentially "describe a property that one person/thing has that the others don't."

Also, refer to the explanation slides at the start.

I made one without Kim JungUn and Park GeunHye. I'd just rather not go there. Also, combined stuff from above to make it a little longer.  It lasted me about 20-25 minutes (I had them write sentences in groups and then talk with other groups about their reasons.
Lots of fun! Thanks for the work everyone! :)

i guess i'm just an idiot, because i don't understand where the game is coming from :( it just looks like speaking practice. could you give me an example of what your students do that makes it insanely fun?

This is how I did it:
1. Explain what "odd-one-out means
2. Give example. Since I use this as a writing game too I show them examples of sentence structure (ie "A hamburger is not a fruit." "A hamburger is fast food.")
3. Give them paper and move to the first group of 4 pictures. Tell them to write a sentence about their answer.  They should be answering the question "Which is the odd-one-out?"
4. After a minute or two, collect answers and discuss.
5. Be internally surprised at how exciting they find this simple game and enjoy an easy 20ish minutes of teaching time.

Hey great idea. I animated and shrunk the file size.

The only picture change was putting in a yellow plane to the vehicles.

OK, I'm just going to ask - if anyone has the time, could someone upload the answers for each slide? I know some of them are glaringly obvious, but some aren't so much to me.... I'm going to blame my friday brain haha!   :cheesy: :cheesy:

There are no right or wrong answers! I've had anything from "Matt Damon is not Korean people" to "Kimchi don't have a soul"

I hope everyone tries this game in the classroom.  Students love it and work so hard to give different answers.  It worked really well in my 3rd through 6th grade elementary afterschool class. Even the most shy and "low level" students of all grades were clamoring to chime in. Thanks alexteacherkorea!

True but for some I can't think of any answers that would make only one of them the odd one out.

Hahah right, but I mean to me (maybe its because I'm from the UK) but odd one out suggests that if one is different then the other three are the same in some way.

So one is a ship but I remember the other three didn't have much in common.

Whereas in this game it seems, in some of the rounds all of them can be the odd one out, and just because one is odd doesn't mean the other three are the "same".

I dunno my kids liked it, I just went with it haha but I think this explains why some people don't seem to "get" it.

We can't seem to download it from the ufile link that you've provided us with - it says 404 file not found.
I'm not sure if the attachment is working though, as I'm not a member.

Perhaps you should replace your ufile.io link with your google drive, as the google drive link seems to be working.
