What's a gingerbread family without a daddy, a mom, and a baby? Help students to understand the concept of fact familes using this interactive SmartBoard activity. The eight interactive pages each have a gingerbread family included where the numbers are secretly hidden until all the blanks are filled in correctly. Once the numbers are revealed the students will see how the daddy is always the biggest number, the mom is also the middle number, and the baby is the smallest number. The slides are set up to introduce what a fact family is, to having students find the sum and the difference, and then challenging students to find the missing numbers in different parts of the problem.
