Small Group Mathematical Reasoning Activity: Odd One Out Vegetables

I have created an entire series of Odd One Out activities for my students.  I divide my students into groups of three or four and have them decide which of a set should be left out.  They need to defend their answers with mathematical thinking.

The sheet pictured above has two activities on it.  I make enough pages for each group and staple the half sheet to a piece of notebook paper to record responses.  I require each person to record their own handwriting and initials on each assignment.  I also require a minimum amount of statements.
