From the Clarisworks database, select EXPORT>RECORDS.  

First, go to the Filemaker Pro file menu, and select IMPORT RECORDS, to find out which mehtods of input your version of FM Pro supports (You didn't mention if you were using 2.0 or 3.0).  Then, go back to Clarisworks, and export the database in a format that Filemaker Pro can import.  This is most effective if your databases are text-only.  You'll have to create a database in FM Pro (before importing) that contains the same number and type of fields of the one you're exporting from Clarisworks 2.1.  Also, you'll probably have to re-format your database layout, as the text file that is exported will not contain such information.

If your DB has images, or other non-text items, then consider using the MacLink Plus Translators that come standard with OS 7.6, and bundled with most versions of system 7.5.

A direct translation from Clarisworks to Filemaker Pro is difficult since Filemaker Pro is so much more full-featured than Clarisworks.  Conversions from FMPro 2 to FMPro 3 are almost seamless, though.
