Review and Discussion
Challenge your child to retell the story. Help him or her remember key details by asking the following questions:
- Why did God decide to send a flood? (to wash away everyone on earth, because people were sinning so much)
- How was Noah different than everyone else? (Noah loved and obeyed God.)
- What did Noah take on the boat with him? (male and female animals, and his family)
Read the following thought aloud to help increase your child’s understanding:
God provided a way to keep Noah, his family and the animals safe during the flood. He gave Noah instructions to follow. Noah followed God’s instructions and was kept safe during the flood. God loves us and provides ways to keep us safe, too.
