Welcome to our Noah’s Ark Bible lesson for children 5 to 10 years old! This fun and interactive lesson will teach your kids all about the problem of sin, obedience and God’s mercy. We have designed this program with 5 to 10 years old children in mind, so they can explore the stories of Noah’s Ark from Genesis 6 – 7 and apply it’s truths to their lives in a relative way.
This lesson focus on the call of Noah, building the Ark and the arrival of the flood. In our next lesson, we will focus on the end of the flood and God’s promise to Noah.

Object lesson from lesson: God takes Sin Seriously
Materials: A big heart inside a plastic pocket (template on next page), a clean cloth and white board erasable markers.
Instructions: Talk about sin with the children. Ask them to define sin and to give examples. Write those examples on the big heart with the erasable markers.
Say: The people in Noah´s day did many bad things and that made God very sad. For that reason, God decided to send the flood to destroy all mankind. God takes sin very seriously.
Instructions: Read 1 John 1:9.
Say: 1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” Noah was a “Righteous” man. (Optional: a visual with the word, “Righteous”) The word, “righteous” contains the word “right”. It means he always tried to do what was correct and to obey God. God wants us to be righteous as well, even though sometimes we do things that don´t honor God. However, God´s word gives us the promise that if we confess the bad things we have done and do what is right, God will always forgive us.
Instructions: Pray with the kids, so that God will help them to avoid sin and obey God. Take a cloth and erase the sins written on the heart.
Say: And just like that, God forgives our sins when we ask Him to, and we decide to obey His Word.
