We love fact families because if we learn one problem, we automatically get 3 more for free!
3+7 = 10
7+3 = 10
10-7 = 3
10-3 = 7
How many problems are in a fact family? What do you know about those problems? When is this rule broken? Which number in the fact family ALWAYS has an “assigned seat?”
Use your knowledge of fact families to list all the addition problems for these worksheets.
Here’s a great MAGIC TRICK from Cyberchase! It works because of fact families. Try it out!
Different cultures have different stories, or folk tales, to explain how things work. This silly folk tale from Liberia, a country in Africa, teaches how the body was created. Head tries frantically to reach the cherries on the tree, but since he has no legs, no arms, and no body he could only eat things on the ground. As the different body parts meet head, they attach in some very strange ways.
There are lots of stories that explain WHY certain things in the world are the way they are. These stories are call pourquoi stories. Pourquoi is the French word for why. Pourquoi stories are usually folk tales that have been handed down for many generations in different cultures.
Think of something you are curious about: stars, gravity, sky, rainbows, giraffes . . .
Think of a title for your pourquoi story.
