I love using these cards as a quick way for students to form into groups of 2, 3, 4, or 5. The pack includes 30 cards.
"2 of a Kind" = students find their matching picture to form partners or groups of 2
"Three Amigos" = students find their matching color circle to form groups of 3
"Quadpod" = students find their matching quadrilateral to form groups of 4
"Fraction Friends" = students find their matching fraction to form groups of 5
25 cards will form EXACT equal groups. The remaining 5 cards will add 1 extra student to each group. The groups then, might not be exact but, it still gives a child a group.
Ways to use:
-Science/Social Studies group reserach
The possibilities are endless. I pass them out and once students form groups, collect them again. You can also have a child keep a certain card to use all quarter/trimester/school year. I collect them to ensure randomized groupings daily.
