They can be tricky

depending on how young a grade you teach. The idea is to "match" two students to the same number on the clock (which a pp kindly provided in a link!). Each student takes his paper, and swaps it with a classmate. They write their names on the SAME space on the clock (for example "1 o'clock"). They are now "1 o'clock buddies". Then the paper goes back to the original owner, (this is where you have to be monitoring closely!) and it continues to another pairing for "2 o'clock buddies" and so on. Continue until the clock is filled.

If it's done right, you just have to give the class directions to "pair up with your __o' clock buddy" and everyone is with someone. I like it for the beginning of the school year, because it forces them to work with partners that they might not normally choose, but may actually enjoy working with. Later in the year, it may fall apart (I always get a new student, lose a student, or have one who is chronically absent or have to figure out a way to deal with an odd number of students), but by then, you've got a solid base for working in pairs.
