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.
