What's YOUR favorite Number? Poll says we do have one...

A recent poll  asked the question,” What is your favorite number?”  The response with the most votes…the number 7. The number 7 is also MY favorite number(with 5 being a close second).  Got me thinking of all the things that have the number 7 related to them. Here is my list. You may want to ask your student this question and then brainstorm all the different things THEY can think of that have to do with the number 7. Might be fun to ask another question about numbers,” What is your least favorite number?” I think I would respond with the number 1. As Three Dog Night once sang, “One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do.” 

* Ask students to give a reason for these selection of their favorite and least favorite numbers.

7 wonders of the ancient world
7 dwarfs in Snow White
7 continents
7 days of the week
7 years of bad luck breaking a mirror
7 hills of Rome
7 colors of the rainbow
Soda called 7 UP
7 reindeer of Santa
7 books in the Harry Potter series
7 foods in the food pyramid
7 openings in the human head
7 sided shape(called a heptagon)
7 notes on a scale
7 games in playoff series in NBA, NHL, MLB

7 seas
7 stars (main) in Big Dipper and Orion constellations.
7 objects that can be seen from space with the naked eye(sun,moon, Mars, Venus,Saturn, Jupiter and Mercury)
