Practice fact families with this cute spring-themed craft! All you need is construction paper, scissors, glue or tape, and a marker to make a fact family flower. This activity is ideal for first, second, and third grade students.
To assemble the fact family flower, draw and cut out the following shapes: a long green rectangle for the stem; four pink hearts for the petals; and a yellow circle for the center.
Attach each of the petals to the center circle with glue or tape. Adhere the stem to the back of the center circle too.
Set the flower against a "blue sky" background (blue construction paper) with some more glue or tape.
Choose the numbers you want to use in your fact family. We chose 10, 7, and 3. In the center circle, write those numbers with a marker. On each of the petals, write one of the math facts that belongs in the fact family. For example, we wrote: 3 + 7 = 10, 7 + 3 = 10, 10 - 7 = 3, and 10 - 3 = 7.
Label your stem with "My Fact Family." Add the child's name if you wish.
Hang up your fact family flowers in your classroom for a reminder that spring is in the air!
