Build Your Own Fact Family Houses

Fact families are a way of thinking about the relationships between different numbers. For example, the numbers 2, 4, and 6 form a family. 2+4=6 and 4+2=6. But that's not all! 6-4=2 and 6-2=4. These four addition and subtraction problems make up the fact family for the numbers 2, 4, and 6. Help your child visualize fact families by drawing houses with the three numbers displayed on the roof and the four fact family problems displayed inside the home. To get started, try making a fact family house out of the numbers 2, 5, and 7.
