Why the Tree of Life?

Six

We skipped Six and saved it for after Seven in order to introduce "doubling." Again, we looked to nature, this time to find double three's. Insects have pairs of three legs. A pair of clover has six leaves. The Star of David has two triangles.
We got out our counting stones and played with doubling numbers. I would tell him to count out two rocks, and then I would ask him to double that. Four! Then, count out five rocks. Double that. 10!
