Fourth of July Math Centers: Patriotic Fact Families

★ Triangle Facts

★ 102 Fact Families with Patriotic graphics

★ Great for learning addition and subtraction facts!
(32 Different Patriotic Graphics)

Common Core: Number Families
Understand and apply properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction.
• CCSS.Math.Content.1.OA.B.3 Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract.2 Examples: If 8 + 3 = 11 is known, then 3 + 8 = 11 is also known. (Commutative property of addition.) To add 2 + 6 + 4, the second two numbers can be added to make a ten, so 2 + 6 + 4 = 2 + 10 = 12. (Associative property of addition.)
• CCSS.Math.Content.1.OA.B.4 Understand subtraction as an unknown-addend problem. For example, subtract 10 – 8 by finding the number that makes 10 when added to 8.

★ Being able to write the number facts for a Fact Family is an important skill that helps students realize how memorizing one fact helps you to know 3 other facts right away!

★ Use just the Triangle Facts that are appropriate for your students. This activity can grow with your students’ abilities and allow for differentiation.

★ I have included black and white recording sheets if you want to make copies for students to use pencil.

★ I have included colored recording sheets if you want to laminate them and make them part of a center for students to write on with erasable markers.

★ There are 2 types of recording sheets:

★ One has the addition signs, subtraction signs and equal signs for students who are just beginning to learn about fact families.

★ The other is for more advanced students and has just lines for students to write the facts in their entirety.

★ I have also included Fact Family Awards, 2 in color and 2 in black and white for students to color.

Students need to remember:

• The 2 smallest numbers always add up to the largest number.

• The order of those 2 smaller numbers can be changed because of the Commutative Property of Addition.

• The subtraction facts always begin with the largest number.

• Either of the smaller numbers can be subtracted from the largest number.
