Lithium, Sodium and Potassium are all in group 1 of the periodic table (pt) which is the alkaline metal group. They each have 1 outer shell electron and are very reactive. Reactivity increases as you down the group. Calcium is reactive but not as reactive as it is in Group 2 of the pt the alkaline metal group.
