How to Spot Things That Are Not The Same - Time and again, we have come across problems that involve more than one object. When you have a set of objects, or when you have a bunch of things, it is not necessary that all of them turn out to be the same. While many of those objects could be the same, but it's not possible every time. This is the time when you might get confused. Most people can quickly spot things that are a little in the group. But most of the time, due to lack of attention and focus, we take a little longer to spot out things that are different in a group. If you are one of the students who find difficulty in spotting out things that are not the same; here's a little help for you with that. 1. Carefully look at the objects/things in the group. 2. Analyze them carefully and look for the obvious differences. 3. If you can't find the obvious differences, then look for small differences in things like shape or size. With the above-mentioned tricks, you will be able to spot the differences quicker than you think. These worksheets can be used to compare and contrast visual images and then teach students to add missing parts.

Some teachers think that this is a skill students should learn in art. I thought that for a long time, until I started teaching Geometry.
