Kids love building fact families too! I put the craft sticks and number pins that kids will need to build one fact family in a large ziploc bag. Kids then act as detectives to figure out what fact family they can build using these components.
A, Bee, C, Preschool: Building Shapes. Kindergarten readiness: Colored craft sticks are labeled with the number of sides each shape has, ie: 3 purple sticks - triangle. The children will choose a color and build the matching colored shape from the sticks.
How many triangles can you make with 9 sticks? Or older kids, Who can use these 9 sticks to make the most triangles? Kids can reinforce geometry and critical thinking skills through creating various shapes with sticks.
