These cards help make random grouping in the classroom. There are 17 pairs and 2 options for groupings of 3. Hand out cards randomly and students communicate to find their partner. There are 3 levels of cards, one with a picture of the partner’s card, one with a description of the partner’s card and one with no detail as to whom is the partner card is. In this third option, students would have to explain to you in the target language why that person should be their partner.
This could be an activity of it’s own or be used to pair students up to complete work in partners.
