### Description

Do your kids lack understanding of what comprises a standard deck of cards? Mine did, too, until I let them spend some time exploring what exactly what was in each set! Pair your kiddos up and give them each a deck of cards and this one-page handout to encourage some student-centered learning!

In this activity, students will:

--identify how the deck is categorized by color, suit, and number/face cards

--determine the probability of simple events (pulling a red card)

--determine the probability of independent events (pulling a red, replacing it, and pulling another red)

After students complete the activity, you can create an anchor chart as a class so that students have something to jog their memory when answering probability questions.

Check out the preview to see what you will receive!

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Develop a uniform probability model by assigning equal probability to all outcomes, and use the model to determine probabilities of events. For example, if a student is selected at random from a class, find the probability that Jane will be selected and the probability that a girl will be selected.
Develop a probability model (which may not be uniform) by observing frequencies in data generated from a chance process. For example, find the approximate probability that a spinning penny will land heads up or that a tossed paper cup will land open-end down. Do the outcomes for the spinning penny appear to be equally likely based on the observed frequencies?
Find probabilities of compound events using organized lists, tables, tree diagrams, and simulation.
Understand that, just as with simple events, the probability of a compound event is the fraction of outcomes in the sample space for which the compound event occurs.
