Handout Topic:
Climate change and the affect on wildlife and habitats.

‘In the News’ Intro:
A wild polar bear was found roaming around a rural village in eastern Russia, hundreds of kilometers from its typical habitat. The exhausted and starved bear had traveled on an ice floe from the remote town of Chukotka to a village on the Kamchatka Peninsula, about 700 kilometers south. Russian authorities mounted an operation to relocate the bear to its natural habitat. The bear was tranquilized, put in a container, flown by helicopter and then released into the wild.

In the Odd One Out ESL activity students have to work together to decide and explain why one of four objects is the odd one out. They must give a reason why. Ask higher level students to be creative with their answers so it’s entertaining for the other students when sharing the reasons afterwards. Not only should you get some interesting ideas but being able to justify a choice and explain reasoning is an important skill for your students.

Example objects:
chicken    duck    airplane    pigeon

Possible reasons why it is the ‘odd one out’:
An airplane is a machine.
An airplane is bigger than a chicken, a duck or a pigeon.
You can’t eat an airplane.
