Teaching kids about the story of Noah? We’ve put together the best stories and crafts for kids on the web that will make the story of Noah come alive.
You don’t have to go far in the Bible to find the story of Noah. Genesis 6:9 through 9:28 tells the entire story of Noah. Here is the short version: From the time of Adam and Eve to Noah humans had become evil and did not follow God. Reminds me a lot of modern day America but at least we’re not down to one true follower. During Noah’s time he and his family were the only people on earth who honored God so God decided to end human life sparing only Noah and his family.
God told Noah that he was going to destroy the world by sending a great flood and gave him the instructions to build a big boat. How they ever got it built without power tools is a miracle all by itself. It took Noah a long time to build the ark, estimates range from 50 to 75 years. During that time people had to think Noah had lost his mind but finally the ark was built and animals loaded.
Then it rained and rained which covered the entire earth, even the tops of mountains. Finally it stopped raining and the waters went down and the ark came to rest on a mountain. After more time life came back and everyone left the boat. As a final sign God put a rainbow in the sky promising not to destroy the earth by water again.
Most children in church learn this story before the 5th grade either in Sunday School, Vacation Bible School or in Children’s Church.
