## Fact Family Maze Activity Worksheets

This worksheet set contains three levelled worksheets covering the same skill (using fact families to solve number facts), at varying levels of complexity. Each worksheet is a single page.

Students should be assigned the worksheet that best meets them at their present level or ability using fact families to solve multiplication and division expressions. The one-star worksheet is scaffolded to include more built-in support and less complex expressions, using only multiples (or increases) of 1, 2, 5, & 10. The two-star worksheet includes more variety and complexity in the problems, including factors 1-10 The three-star worksheet has more complex expressions to 12x and multiple-step questions.

## Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding

In addition to individual student work time, use this worksheet as a:

• Maths rotation or guided group
• lesson exit ticket
• fast finisher activity
• homework assignment
• whole-class review (via smartboard)

To provide a challenge, start a student with the level 3 worksheet. Additionally, the resource can also be edited to include even larger numbers and more complex expressions.

To support students, consider starting with the level 1 worksheet and provide assistance when needed with resources such as a multiplication chart. Demonstrate how to use the resources to help them with the worksheet. Then, let the student attempt level 2 with less assistance.

Because this resource includes an answer sheet, we recommend you print one copy of the entire file. Then, make photocopies of the blank worksheet for students to complete.

Turn this teaching resource into a sustainable activity by printing on cardboard and slipping it into a write-and-wipe sleeve. Students can record their answers with a whiteboard marker, then erase and reuse.

Additionally, project the worksheet onto a screen and work through it as a class by having students record their answers in their notebooks.
