Here is another great, fun, engaging game for students to practice not only their addition AND subtraction facts (their fact families), but ALSO, their problem solving, and cognitive and logical reasoning skills!
My kids love this game so much, that they ask for a set for home as well to play outside of school!! That is the best type of activity, because they are having fun, want to play, while learning at the same time!!!
Players compete to find a "set" which consists of 3 cards making up a fact family: 2 cards adding up to the 3rd, or two cards with the difference between the two being the 3rd - example: 2, 5, and 7.
However, there is an added rule, there are 4 colors to the cards, and in the set, all colors must be either the same, or all different!
This game can easily be differentiated for different levels of students or different grades, and is explained in the directions.
Here are some of the standard this game hits on:
What is included:
1.) Fact Family Set Directions:
*Object of the game
*How to play
*How to differentiate - 4 levels
2.) Fact Family Set Cards
*80 total cards
*1-20 - in 4 different colors
3.) Fact Family Set Recording Sheet (2 different sheets)
*Recording Sheet to record fact families in addition format
*Recording Sheet to record fact families in subtraction format
*At the end of each game, have students record the sets they found to solidfy the fact families and help them visualize the families quicker!
My students absolutely LOVE this game - it is a must have for any classroom or household to practice math facts!!
