There are many books readily available to help you teach this story…Let’s focus on the grace and goodness of the LORD because even though God destroyed the earth with a flood…”Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD”. (The first mention of grace in the Bible) On the back of this page we color a rainbow to remind us that God always keeps His promises.”…the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment…” 2 Peter 3:6-7
Don’t we always think of Noah with a long, white beard? You can glue a tiny bit of cotton to Noah’s chin ! I used brown card stock for the arks but you can just color them. Turn over the rainbow page and that is where you will glue down the ark. The animals will have to be glued down in order , after they are colored and cut out, to get them all to fit…giraffes first, then elephants, Noah and the turtles last…Don’t forget you can email me with questions. Color some water and add raindrops.
This lesson was prepared with a younger elementary age child in mind. For a coloring page more suitable for the older elementary-school aged child see my post “A New Beginning” at kidsbible.wordpress.com (Oct. 3, 2012) Instructions for a mosaic dove are also available.
