These cards give you a simple, unbiased way to put your students into groups! Each student receives a card with a random number, dinosaur, planet, and fruit on it. When you need to group students for class activities, labs, or discussions, just give them an attribute (for example, "Find your planet partner"). All of the students with Mercury on their card will join together, all of the students with Venus on their cards will join together, etc. All four groups will be filled with different students- no more students traveling with a classroom buddy. For even more fun, have students trade cards with someone else in the classroom every few weeks, giving them each a whole new set of groups each time.
These cards are designed to work for class sizes between 12 and 36 students, and the modifications for class sizes in-between have been included in the teacher guide.
