Forty-nine of us, forty-eight men and one woman, lay on the green waiting for the spike to open. We were too tired to talk much. We just sprawled about exhaustedly, with home-made cigarettes sticking out of our scrubby faces.

After students master the game, they might play in teams of three or four. Provide each pair of students with a deck of cards. The game is played in much the way the traditional card game War is played. The biggest difference is that players add or subtract or multiply the cards they reveal.
To arrange students into pairs, you might try this random method. Count out index cards so you have one for each student. Write on one card a simple math problem e. Continue writing problems and solutions until you have written something on all the cards. Be sure all the solution cards have a different number on them; in that way, only one problem card will match each solution card.
Pass out the cards to students. Put a card face down on each students desk. If you have an odd number of students, you hold one of the cards.
When you say "Go," each student flips over his or her card, reads it, and tries to locate the classmate with the matching card. When they find each other, the partners can begin playing the game below.
If you have an odd number of students, the student who was holding the card that matched yours might play War with you or you might ask one of the pairs if they will allow a third person to be part of their game. Before Playing Choose the operation -- addition, subtraction, or multiplication -- you want students to practice.

The Ace has a value of 1. Decide if you want students to leave in or take out the face cards. If you leave them in the game, decide what values those cards might have.
Rules for Play Shuffle the deck of cards and place it face down. Each student draws a card from the top of the deck and reveals the card. Cards can be revealed one at a time or at the same time. When both cards are revealed, students must perform the assigned operation on the cards.
For example, if one student flips over a 5 of hearts and the other flips over a 9 of spades, then the students add in their heads the value of those two cards. The first student to call out "14" wins those two cards. Play continues in this manner until the end of a predetermined time or until one student has all the cards.
If time runs out, the student with the most cards wins. Assessment Students will have enjoyed the game and gotten some good practice from playing it.THE SPIKE.

We have now placed Twitpic in an archived state. I admit I am not one much for poetry, but ever since I read Martin Gilbert's THE FIRST WORLD WAR, which was replete with poetry written in the heat of battle, I've learned that verse is one of the most effective ways for a combat veteran to communicate the experiences of war.
