Teaching Fact Familiesanother fun way to practice fact families OR discussing the relationship between addition and subtraction.

Fact Family Album Idea

"My students made a fact family album. I gave each student a pair of numbers. They found the third member of their fact family by adding the two together. I then gave the class this cloze passage:

We are a fact family. There are three members in our family. Their names are 5, 4, and 9. We can do four things together --

5 + 4 = 9 4 + 5 = 9 9 - 5 = 4 9 - 5 = 4

They then illustrated their fact family. I did this on the writing paper that has the space at the top for illustrating."
