In going through this “Bible Overview” series, I wanted to make a Bible study where the kids did some of the foot work, not just listen to me. So for Noah’s Flood I gave them a really simple task broken into three parts as follows: (I put them into two teams so they could work together.)

Team #1

Read Genesis 6 & 7

Find 3 interesting facts that other may not have noticed before.

List 2 things we can learn from this passage.

Name 1 thing you can do this week to apply that principle.

Share your findings with the rest of the group.

Team #2

Read Genesis 8 – 9:17

Find 3 interesting facts that other may not have noticed before.

List 2 things we can learn from this passage.

Name 1 thing you can do this week to apply that principle.

Share your findings with the rest of the group.

Be prepared for them to be finished in 10 minutes, but also be ready in case they take the next 30 minutes.

This is a good exercise for them to start learning to study the Bible for themselves.
