Clock Buddies is a quick way to create pairs for partner activities. Essentially, each student has his or her own copy of a Clock Buddies sheet, in which they have 12 classmate names assigned to the different hours. Each of those other students, in turn, has this student's name in the matching hour slot on each of their clock sheets. When you want students to work with a partner, you call out a time, for example, "It's time to work with your 6 o'clock buddy." Students then get together with the buddy whose name is on that time slot.
