Materials Required: 1 deck of cards
Activity Time: 40-45:00
Concepts Taught: spatial awareness, teamwork

Divide class into 4 groups by suits of cards: Spades, Diamonds, Clubs, Hearts,
Put cards all over the gym face down.
Object is to have one student in each line go one at a time like a relay race, pick one card and look at it if it is the right suit for your team take it back to your team. The team that collects the 13 cards for each suit first and puts them in sequence 1-king is the winner. i let them then place the cards wherever they want and choose which suit the want to be for the next game. It is very fun and the students love it!
