I'm baffled...

My four year old is in speech therapy and he has homework to do during the week... So one of the pages this week was a one of these four doesn't belong page... So, which doesn't belong - shark, lizard, frog or whale???

Interesting... my answer was Shark (because shark doesn't breathe air)..

mammal - whale?
doesn't breathe air - shark?

I'm going to go ask my 5yrs old before bed, I'll add his answer in a bit

ok he said lizard b/c they don't live in water.
So I guess his answer is correct depending on type of lizard Smile sharks/whales live in water, frogs are both

My first thought was lizard too.

Did you find out what answer they wanted?

I've emailed his speech therapist to try to find out the answer but haven't heard back... it is weird because the rest of the questions were like hummingbird, seagull, elephant, blue jay. Pretty straight forward!!

My mom said maybe a frog because it doesn't have a tail.

My answer would be whale- mammal.

I asked my 7 year old and she said lizard because they don't go in the water.

Lol any update?

The therapist said she hadn't looked closely at the page of homework and hadn't realized that the question was on there. It wasn't like he was being graded, so she just said to skip the question, but that lizard was probably what the authors were going for.... so there you are, not a very satisfying answer.

More exciting news in my next post!
