Seven: 7 (seven) is the natural number following 6 and preceding 8. It is the only prime number preceding a cube, and is often considered lucky in Western culture, and is often seen as highly symbolic.

Fun Fact: It is the first number whose pronunciation contains more than one syllable, not counting 0.

Straight Angle: An angle with a measure of 180 degrees.

We can find straight angles on pretty much any flat surface! How many straight angles do you think you can find in your house?
