Planting Fact Families

One of our latest spring "creations" incorporated a little bit of art with a little bit of math. We have been reviewing fact families and practicing inverse operations. For this activity, the students rolled dice to determine the first two digits in their fact family. Using those two numbers, they created the full fact family for addition and subtraction facts. Then, they transferred their fact families onto potted plants for our door: the addition and subtraction facts were written on the pots, while each bloom featured a different digit in the fact family. Short, sweet, and to the point!

 The pots added a nice, fresh splash of color to our door. :)
