The cards have been designed to be used in a class of 15 or 25 students. A symbol, at
the bottom of the cards can be used to sort the cards. If you use cards with a ! the set
will make one cycle with 25 cards. If you use cards with a # the set will make a cycle of
15 cards. Using the symbols you can quickly sort the cards into a set of 15 or 25 cards.
Included in this activity are
1. A teacher’s master list of all 26 cards. The “I Have” for card 1 is not the answer to card 1. It is the answer to either card 15* or 25. The “I Have” for card 2 is the answer to card 1.
2. One set of 15 (club cards) or 25 (heart cards)
Distribute copies of the Student Recording Sheet for students to record their solutions as students read their cards.
You need to use either the set of 15 (club cards) or 25 (heart cards) to complete a cycle.
Have one student read their question for “Who Has”. The rest of the students should set up problem and try to solve it. When someone discovers they have the answer to the question, they read their card. This produces a new card and a new problem. The new problem is described and the class works on new problem. This procedure continues until the last person reads their problem and it turns out to be the answer of the original first card.
