## Fact Family Hands-On Maths Game!

Reinforce your students’ understanding of the relationship between addition and subtraction in a tangible way using this hands-on activity! Explore part-part whole as a concept using fun fact families!

To prepare this resource for your next small-group maths activity, print the mats and cards on cardboard (or paper and then laminate for durability). Cut apart the separate cards.

To play, students choose a number sentence card and build it on the number bond mat using manipulatives. Students then record answers or representations on the provided recording sheet.

Features of this resource include:

• Seperate building mats for differentiation.
• Separate addition and subtraction cards and mats.
• Facts within 10 for Foundation-level and within 20 for Grade One.

## Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your maths

In addition to individual student work time, use this part-part-whole game to enhance learning through guided groups, whole class lessons, or even homework assignments.

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts:

### 🆘 Support Struggling Students

Provide a number line or an addition facts poster for students to refer to as they physically build the number sentence representations!

### ➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

Have students write their own number sentences for a partner to build.

Print on cardboard for added durability and longevity. Place all pieces in a folder or large envelope for easy access.

To keep the task cards out of pockets or under desks, punch a hole in the corner of each to place them on a binder ring.

Sustainability Tip: Print a few recording sheets on cardboard and slip them into write-and-wipe sleeves. Students can record their answers with a whiteboard marker, then erase and reuse them.
