These 36 Partner Up cards are easy to use and a simple tool for encouraging collaboration. The pictures on these cards add novelty to the idea of finding a partner to talk to. Rather than just having students turn to the person next to them, partner cards provide students with the opportunity to mingle with more students in the classroom.
The cards are easy to prep. You simply print, cut apart, and glue onto a popsicle stick. They are then ready to use. The cards are distributed to each student. As they receive their card they stand up and wait for everyone to have a card. Once everyone has a card then students move around the classroom to find their partner.
