My Primary 6 Lesson 8 handout packet includes

  • Stop, Poison, and Not Allowed sign to go with the Attention Activity. I made these black and white so you can save ink by printing on colored paper or coloring.
  • Build Noah's Ark- Noah's ark has the 6 questions mentioned in the Enrichment Activities. Cut each question apart and give to members of your class to answer. As they answer correctly, have them put their piece of the boat on the board to build his ark. When it's completed, let every draw themselves in the ark. Note- I did not include the multiple choice answers with this. You can write them on the board if you want to provide that additional help.
