Low prep and can be used over and over for grouping students in groups or paris for activities for a class of up to 30 students!
This is a great way to pair off students without much thought or prep! Each student gets a card and you decide how you would like students to be paired. Each card includes a number, color, and shape. Students will get a card and will not be able to 'break the code' so that they are able to work with their friends because there are many options for groups. I would suggest laminating before passing out to classes.
You can group students as follows:
Same number (group of 4)
Same shape (group of 4)
Same color (group of 4)
Odds find evens (pairs)
One of each color (group of 8)
One of each number (group of 8)
Evens & Odds (split the class in 2)
