Random Partner Cards

PDF | 7 pages|Grades: 1 - 6

A set of 38 cards to use when assigning random partners in your classroom.

Use this teaching resource when assigning random partners for a project or activity in your classroom.

Print out the cards on card and cut them out. Give each student a card. Students must walk around the room looking for an item commonly paired with theirs, e.g., bacon and eggs, peanut butter and jam, peas and carrots. When they have found their match, they have also found their partner!

Alternatively, put each card on a lanyard, making storage and passing out a bit easier. It also cuts down on the wear and tear of the cards.

We have provided four blank cards for you to add other pairings if you choose.

Use the drop-down menu to choose between the color and black and white versions.
