A sorting activity to demonstrate an understanding of addition and subtraction fact families.

Use this teaching resource when your students are learning about fact families.

Print the rocket ships and the number sentence cards on cardstock. Cut out the number sentence cards and store them in a resealable bag so that they can be used over and over again.

Students much find the 4 number sentences that belong in the fact family that has the 3 numbers shown at the top of each rocketship. Repeat until all three rocketships are completed.

Curriculum

• CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.OA.B.3

Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract.2 Examples: 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 ...

• CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.OA.C.6

Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - ...

• CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.NBT.B.5

Fluently add and subtract within 100 using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
