These pairing cards are a fun way to sort students into random pairs. Included are 20 different sets of pair cards, each pair displaying an identical image of a cute animal (enough for 40 students) and two sets of cards for groups of three (ideal if you have an odd number of students in your class). The cards in groups of three have a small ‘3’ on the corner of the card.
Distribute the cards randomly amongst students, using however many cards you need to from the pack to suit your class. Students then move around the classroom until they find the other student with the matching card to their own and form a pair. The students can then begin paired work.
Perfects for paired work, beginning of the school year, getting to know you activities and cooperative learning activities.
