⭐️What Teachers Are Saying about Unravel the Fact⭐️

  • "This was a wonderful way for my resource students to review previously taught material or practice current skills. The facts made them engaging and also easy to leave as a station with a sub or an aide because they were self-checking."

  • "I think these are very fun! They cover a bunch of skills and I really like how they have a page to glue the pieces on. The kids like the facts too."

  • "I LOVE this product! My students have so much fun solving problems, putting the puzzle together, and reading the interesting fact. I love that literacy is a part of this math product. Thank you again!"

  • "I bought these unravel the fact activities for both my children whom I homeschool. These activities are their favorite! I love that it reinforces math skills they have already learned and they love the cutting and putting together the facts in their notebook. This is an excellent independent activity for my children!"
