Fact families are great for helping children see the relationship between addition and subtraction.

This interactive activity contains 16 number fact families from 3 to 18 and can be used as a game for 2 or more players. Players take it in turn to turn over a card and see if it is a match to the fact family on their board.

Alternatively use as an individual activity and have the player use a clothespin or paper clip to attach each number fact to the correct fact family house. Also included are black line only copies for teachers wishing to save on ink.

This is a great addition to your math center.

Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract. 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.)
