Preschool Instant Lesson: Noah’s Ark

LESSON 2: Noah’s Ark

Activity: Zoo LineUp
o None needed
Tell the children that you are going to pretend that the zoo animals in a large city have gotten loose. You must gather them all before they get away or hurt someone. Have each one pretend they are a zoo animal. They cannot be anything they see someone else pretending to be. Go to each child and say, Oh, here is my_____________(elephant).  Back into your stall you go. Pretend to lock them up and go look for another animal. The locked up children can come out of their cage and pretend to be a different animal. Continue the activity until the children cannot think of any more animals to be or until your time has run out. In our Bible story today, many animals both tame and wild are gathered together and put on a special boat…

Lesson: One Good Man


· Noah Story

· A bag filled with props for the story:

· a globe or map (the world had become a scary place)

· a picture of Noah (His name was Noah.

· a spray bottle of water (God decided to send a big rain)

· 2 identical stuffed animals (and two of every animal)

· a toy boat or a picture of the ark (in a big boat called an Ark)

· a hammer (Noah kept on building the ark…)

· a picture of a rainbow or a rainbow item (Later God sent a rainbow)

Read the story, pulling out one item at a time (at the appropriate time~ the phrases are highlighted in the story). Then, ask these questions about the story:

1) Who was the only man in our story that listened to God? (Noah)

2) Who sent the big rain? (God)

3) What did Noah build? (an ark or boat)

4) What did Noah take on the ark with him? (his family and two of every animal)

5) What did God send to show his promise that He’s never flood the whole earth again? (a rainbow)
