4 Pics 1 Word

So, over the past few weeks the entire world seems to have become obsessed with the smart phone app – “4 Pics, 1 Word”. Not a day goes by where someone doesn’t ask for my help on one they’re stuck on, whether it be in person or online. For those of you who haven’t seen it, it does exactly what it says on the tin. It gives you four pictures, and you must find the word that connects them. I figured that it could be used extremely well in the classroom, and have set about creating my own versions to use as starters. Here are the ones I’ve come up with so far:









Fellow maths teachers Dave Gale (@reflectivemaths) and Paul Collins (@mrprcollins) have created their own versions, read about them here:
