Lesson Plan on Faith - Noah's Ark
Intro - Would you build a 15-story space station for Venus if God appeared to you and promised he’d have a rocket ready for you by next year?
Noah’s predicament: God’s promise versus risk of ridicule - sadness to see destruction
Optional: Assign students to draw illustrations of the ark, animals (caricatures OK)
Assign characters to 3 students: God, Noah, and Skeptic (a skeptical observer)
Students take turns reading Story of Noah with God and Noah doing their parts
Occasionally, ask Skeptic for a comment
Does anyone really face faith challenges any more?
Soldiers go to war
Taking an airplane on vacation
Trips to faraway places
Running a relay race
Ask where faith is found elsewhere in the Bible
Ask where faith is good in lives of the students
Summarize meaning for today
