FREE: Twelve Shevatim / Twelve Tribes / שִׁבְטֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל “Dice” Game

imageThis printable activity goes with last night’s printable dodecahedron.

In keeping with the theme of twelves, it’s a race to twelve points – roll the die and identify the mother of the shevet / tribe you’ve just rolled.  If you get it right (answer charts are included in English, Hebrew, and Transliterated English), you earn points – more for Rachel, Bilhah and Zilpah, and fewer for Leah (to discourage guessing “Leah” every single time!).  :-)

Have fun memorizing these important details!  PLEASE – I’d love feedback, so just leave a comment if this resource is useful to you.  If you follow me here or on Twitter, even better.

  1. LOVE this tool... but had to go find my own printable dodecahedron and make my own - yours isn't compatible with dial-up machines from the stone age, apparently. Anyhow, I will be linking to your page from my blog, so others can see/use this. Thank you!
