This Wednesday will be 12-12-12. Since it will be the last time for a long time that the month, day and year can all be the same number, my class is celebrating by finding out facts about 12. For example, did you know that twelve comes from a Germanic word “twalif” meaning two more? Or that you have exactly twelve finger bones (without your thumb)? Or that there have been 12 people to walk on the moon? Okay, the moon thing might be a fluke, but there are some serious historical and mathematical connections to twelve. Our entire system of measuring type is based on 12 – 12 months in a year, 2 sets of 12 make a day, 12 sets of 5 minutes make an hour, 12 sets of 5 seconds make a minute. This list goes on. Stop by my blog – Raki’s Rad Resources to grab this free sheet to use with your class on 12-12-12 and find other suggestion too.
