Make simple patterns of a person on cream and brown coloured paper. Reproduce it four times.
Make paper doll clothes (shirts, shorts, pants, boots, etc.) to fit the people. Put outfits in sets of four.
On each piece of the four-piece outfit write one each of the facts in a family (i.e. 2+4=6, 4+2=6, 6-2=4, 6-4=2). Make as many “sets” of math fact clothes as you desire.
Lay all the clothes on the table. Students have to find the clothes that dress his or her person in a complete math fact family. The teacher can check the student’s first outfit and then the student is free to put together another correct math fact family outfit.
Enjoy! You know that students always love to dress up; so this makes maths facts fun!
