Elise from The Vienna International School in Austria got in touch with us and her teacher, Miss Curwood, sent in a short video. Elise wrote:

I showed 12 in many ways.
I showed 12 in a shape, and in a picture of a chair. And I showed 6 groups of 2 and 2 groups of 6 and 1 group of 12.
I can show 12 in so many ways. I will try to find more.
