Which shape is the odd one out? Hint: think about the sides.

We’re shown three different shapes. And we have to find the odd one out. We’re given a hint to think about the sides. What do you notice about the sides of these shapes? Let’s look at the first shape. Let’s count how many sides it has. One, two, three, four, five, six. The first shape has six sides.

Can you spot another shape which could have six sides? These two shapes look very similar. Let’s count the number of sides. One, two, three, four, five, six. Both of these shapes have six sides. If both of these shapes have the same number of sides, the circle must be the odd one out. A circle doesn’t have six sides. The other two shapes are hexagons. Hexagons have six sides.

So the shape which is the odd one out is the circle.
