Fact Family Rocket Blast Off - Blank Version

PDF | 2 pages|Grades: 1 - 3

A sorting activity to demonstrate an understanding of fact families.

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

Print the rocket ships and the blank number sentence cards on cardstock. Cut out the blank cards and write your own fact family facts on them. Store them in a resealable bag so that they can be used over and over again. Slide the rocketships into a dry erase sleeve so that students can write on them with dry-erase markers.

First, students will find 4 number sentences that belong in the same fact family and place them inside of a rocketship. Then, have them write the three numbers that make up each fact family in the circles at the top of the rocketship. Repeat until all three rocketships are completed.

This activity works well as a math center activity.

Use the drop-down menu to choose between the full color, low color, or black and white version.
