Promote a Social/Leisure Skill with Special Interests
A fun way to increase interest in playing card games with family or friends is by using a deck of cards that features pictures of favorite characters. I've used a deck of cards featuring the characters from Angry Birds: Star Wars to play a variety of "classic" card games, such as War or Slapjack. We also worked on adding and subtracting using the cards as manipulatives to demonstrate the math problems. There are many ways that a set of cards could be used for teaching activities.
